Pete Murray : Let You Go


Pete ‘Moist’ Murray, mayor of Blah Town, brings us another single from his mildly successful new album Blue Sky Blue. Repetition and awkward phrasing seem rife on this record. Not only is the album title twee and graceless, but this single includes the phrase ‘I have to let you go just like I want you to stay.’ Beware. It is dangerous because it almost makes sense, especially when he bleats it in that quasi-bogan, Honest John surf folk tenor. But actually it doesn’t mean anything, it’s just some stupid, cloying thing Pete Murray wrote in his endless crusade to woo women. Ignore the gently undulating melody, he is the devil.
