Trampolene today dropped their first new track since May, so as you’d imagine we all were clambering online at the stroke of 9am waiting to hear their latest musical offering, and it does not disappoint. ‘Newcastle Brown Love Song’ is a song that is essentially about acceptance, accepting a person for who they really are, flaws and all. Proudly self centred, but deeply heartfelt and intensely honest.
As the sentiment goes, it’s kind of like love me if you want, but I’m never going to change. Accept me for who I am. This is me. When Jones asks: “Do you still wanna love me now?“, it’s almost as Jones uses his lyrical wit to guard himself, to protect himself from getting hurt, to cling on that isolation and that feeling of safety. You can trust yourself, there is less chance that you will let yourself down and get hurt.
Yet, the video depicts a man that is clearly going through some sort of inner turmoil, an internal battle with himself. It’s almost like he’s pleading for help from the viewer. Well, that’s my prerogative, let us know your thoughts on the video in the comments section below, we’d love to hear what you think about it.
