It’s absolutely brilliant songwriting. I saw a black and white video of them rehearsing “Jigsaw Falling Into Place” and what struck me was not only that it was a beautiful song, but that the band are so committed. There’s no showbiz, just musicians communicating very directly. There’s no fudging that. In both those songs, the chord sequences are very interesting. These are beautiful tunes and I can’t improve on them, so I’ve written my own piece.
A really cool attitude and approach. No wonder it’s easy to dig these artists’ talent.
