TUTV: Valentine titillates your senses, synchronizes your feet-and-head movements and satisfies your ears’ musical needs with its bass-and-drum driven vivacity throughout this instantly gluey groover. On top of the irresistible flow electrifying 4-string sparks trip along now and then and so do subtle piano touches. Then again the near-whispering voice of Ivan creates a what’s going on here tension. Is it a song about loss and hope or moreover about death and forgiveness? Karen‘s femme fatale vocals do not answer that question either. Let our imagination run wild while shaking our hips with eurythmic swing.

Hey there Valentine
Where you going so fast
Won’t you waste your gifts on me
You know your looks won’t last

Come on Valentine
You can’t run from the past
Won’t you sit a spell with me
As autumn leaves downcast

Wake up Valentine
The flags are all half mast
Wash your funeral eyes
All things must pass

Listen Valentine
To your heartbeat next to mine
For your silver dollar smile
The hardest days are worthwhile

Listen to the sparrows
Hanging in the breeze
Telling all their secrets
To the yellow ribbon trees

Play. Here. Now.
