Have you ever been in a situation where someone you’ve met is judging you or calling you out based on their own misperceptions of you? Where you know if they just spent five minutes in your head, they’d understand, and change their view of you? If only they knew how easy they had it in comparison. You know who you are, and you know what you’ve been through, and you know just what an absolute circus it is inside your brain - but they don’t, and you wish they did. That’s what Still Woozy’s “Woof” is about.
It’s bubbly, upbeat, and appealingly melodic, as we’ve come to expect from Sven Gamsky, otherwise known as Still Woozy. Everything he makes is such fun, it’s easy to palate the sometimes thorny and emotional content of his lyricism. It’s so spritely and jaunty, it’s almost hard to reckon with his deeper emotional musings - but maybe that’s okay sometimes. With influences from folk and hip-hop, this tightly arranged bedroom-pop track is the opener from his debut album, If This Isn’t Nice, I Don’t Know What Is.
"You wouldn't last a day in my head
A day in my head
A day in my head (you should try it out sometime)
You wouldn't last a day in my brain
You'd probably go insane
You'd probably never be the same again"
