Today I am suffering from the aftermath of dual celebrations for St Patrick’s Day and Wales’ winning the Grand Slam in the Rugby. I have mixed feelings about nationality and how it relates to identity but when it comes to having a party I’ll happily wear all my heritage on my sleeve. Plus not to let the English side feel left out I popped over the bridge briefly from Cardiff to watch Submotion Orchestra in Bristol. There is plenty to say about the gig but I’m afraid I shall bow out of such lengthy debates and deconstruction in favour of just posting their new single, whilst I try and figure out how to get back to London after missing my 6am bus. If I’m honest it doesn’t quite hold the power of their impressive live version but a great tune nonetheless.
