Ski Lodge Quietly Returns
A few years back, Ski Lodge was all the rage, but then things seemed to go quiet from Andrew Marr. Ever so often he pops up with a new single, just doing his own thing, writing for himself it seems..and me too. This new track is a bit of a move away from where he began, but it’s a beautiful place to find him, treading over that ground warmed by the likes of Hamilton Leithauser and other such powerful voices. Here things unfold gently, rising carefully, but never so far as to seem boisterous, crawling back beneath the mix. Lush arrangements abound, with sweeping strings, all of it building towards the cathartic release at the 2.5 minute mark. Not sure what the future holds here, or if there’s a planned release, but I’ll welcome a newly penned Marr tune any day.
