If you’ve been digging Shane Parish’s previous singles from his upcoming record, Liverpool, then you need to watch the video for his latest, “Randy Dandy O.” Check it out below:
This track, much like all of the music from Liverpool, is an instrumental guitar reimagining of a classic sea shanty. This particular cut was composed as a celebratory song for when sailors finally made landfall and could drink and relax for a while before having to go back to sea again (hence why Parish is performing in front of a boat in a parking lot, instead of say, inside of a boat on the water).
There’s a bright and joyous quality to Parish’s fingerpicking here, as the melody bounces with a cheerful ease. The song’s rippling waves of slightly reverberated fuzz immediately calms any dread that the listener may have, replacing it with a breezy sense of relief. Drink all ye grog, boys.
