The Deloreans - "Dandelion"

Today The Deloreans released to the world a video for their new song Dandelion, it is about about a girl who prefers Dandelions to roses. The group uses this metaphor to explore the idea of real and imagined happiness, is this really what would keep the girl content or is it only temporary. The song is a beautifully arranged waltz using acoustic instruments to convey a sense of sweeping lush melody. Although the band is known for their electric instruments used in a very classic way this song is a step in another direction, combining folk instruments such as acoustic guitar, banjo and ukelele, with classical elements such as a violin traipsing throughout. The song originally appeared on Louisville is for Lovers Summer 7" Series, the green vinyl accompanied their live show on the roof of Glassworks last month which they played with the lovely Scott Carney and Heavy Friends. You can pick up the vinyl on louisvilleisforlovers.com or on the song on the bands personal Bandcamp.

The dreamy video matches the song's whimsical waltz very well. Thanks for mellowing out my Monday morning!
