Pedal steel tears cascade across this new single from Canadian M.E. Netzke. ‘Fully Tickled Pink’ has a baroque folk feel, bringing to mind the likes of Ron Sexsmith and a more subtle and cosmically inclined Rufus Wainwright as it washes over you with its psychedelic drift. Supremely melancholic, it subtly touches on Brian Wilson-esque west coast pop without ever sinking into pastiche. Lovely stuff!
“This song has to do with being unsettled. It’s about knowing wherever a person goes, they’re thinking of someplace farther along. It’s also about living with another who knows this and wants the feeling to cease. It touches on the conflict that situation creates when one party hopes toward the impossible cause of changing someone other than themselves.”
Word is that Netzke may be heading to Australia for some shows in 2022. In the meantime you can hit repeat moon this track and also check his EP of last year, Geranium: Volume One.
