Track Review: Summer Town // The Gleemen

 The Gleeman understands the pain of the January blues. The band evokes a winning pop formula combined with 1960s psychedelia. On their new song “Summer Town” there is a tender acoustic guitar that dominates the song.

The lyrics talk about longing to escape this dreary weather. They are extremely emotional and drip with nostalgia. I’m not normally into music like this, but I hear honesty in the lyrics. The guitar playing is simple, effective, and very folky. It is perfect for a winter’s evening and a warm tea. The Gleeman do a very good job in saying something that everyone feels. I hope this song gets the recognition that it deserves.
