I've been longing for a studio version of this track to emerge since I completely and hopelessly fell in love with it when I first heard the version on the Tropic Of Cancer / HTRK 'Part Time Punks' split 12" on Ghostly International. I digitised the vinyl and whacked it on my phone and totally hammered this track almost to the point of destroying my interest in it, just like fourteen year old girls do.
This single sided 7" contains a different version to what will eventually appear on the forthcoming album for Blackest Ever Black. I'm inclined to think the song was written about Tropic Of Cancer ceasing to be a duo when Juan 'Silent Servant' Mendez left making Tropic Of Cancer just Camella Lobo on her lonesome. That of course is merely speculation and could actually be about her trying to get into Gatecrasher to hear Judge Jules playing shit commercial trance, but getting turned away by the doormen for looking too much like a goth.
So here the lovely Camella penned and performed the track with production assistance from Karl O'Connor (Regis). Her voice is draped in silky ethereal effects, a submerged drum machine rhythm, catchy synth hook and a generally really sad and moving, lonely atmosphere. If I win the lottery I’m gonna hire Camella Lobo and Hope Sandoval to come round my house and sing their angelic tones to me while I am attended to by Swedish women with hot towels.
An anthem for those who have loved and lost. A right old goose bump inducer.
