SONG OF THE DAY Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs – Devil Do


With its ramshackle twists, swirly curves and eerie creaks, today’s song feels like its been plucked from the depths of many moons ago.  The rhythm sounds like a chair beating against against an old dilapidated wooden floor, whilst a percussive patter in the background sounds like a spoon on a tinplate as it echoes out with a clinking ring.  It’s a vintage cacophony perfect for any song about the devil!

For her 2009 track, Devil Do, Holly Golightly celebrates the unconditional love from the man below, her unabashed revelment on whisky and wine is not judged by him and though “the Lord does not like it, the devil don’t mind.”  Her sinful spree is unfaltering and with no desire for immediate salvation, lyrics exclaim “You can dunk me in the river, gonna clean my sin/But you might as well dunk me in a bucket of gin”.  Nobody loves you like the devil, but if your’re not entirely convinced right now, give this track a couple more listens and see how you feel…check it out above.
