Walk You Home
'Walk You Home' is the new single from Passenger, released on Chalkmark Records on 3rd September 2007. With its sunny, upbeat tempo, metronomic beats and spry acoustics the song starts off sounding like a tale of unrequited love as the protagonist says: `I see you nearly everyday but you don't see me'. The warmth of the romantic rhythm matched with singer Mike Rosenberg's nostalgic vocal distracts from the grim reality of what's really going on with this obsessive and dysfunctional boy. It manages to be upbeat and funny yet simultaneously darkly sinister and once again demonstrates Mike's talent for writing lyrics in character.
The main beat was created using a trashy 25 year old Casio drum machine and the electric guitar featured was a vintage '60s model rescued from a skip in Brighton. So never let it be said that Passenger aren't doing their bit for recycling and the environment!.
Their debut album, 'Wicked Man's Rest', will be out in September.
