Waiting for the Day to Begin
Traquair are all things summery, positive and pop, which makes them stand out like the only non-sore thumb in a world of angsty, pissed-off and political music. In fact, the front cover of a sunny beach doesn’t go far enough in divulging the state of affairs. A long-grassed meadow in the full noon-sun with poppies and butterflies is what’s needed.
However, the lyrics aren’t as naive as all that, it’s positive alright but not in a wet or limp way; ‘Faithful’ is a reassuring pat on the shoulder, an attempt to cheer us up and ultimately acknowledges that not everything is peachy – but it’ll be alright.
It’s not ground-breaking or challenging, but it’s… well… nice.
