Music As The Mirror Of Our Lives
Polaris If you get blown off course In filling in the parts of your life that have disappeared Medicating Quickstep reflections in the dark mirrors of our lives
Damon Albarn kicks in on the first verse of ‘Polaris.’ Last year was a period to think clearly about our needs and our feelings. The music leads us to reflections in many ways. Inspired by many like The Beatles and The Beach Boys, the new song starts with smooth psychedelic Mellotron melodies. Is it ‘Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds?’ Well, ‘Polaris’ is a rewritten version with all this intricate lyricism we know from the amazing Blur singer.
