You Make Me Feel Blue by David Blaize: “reminiscent of McCartney at his peak”

We asked some music people to tell us about tracks they love from the west coast. Here is a selection from Gary Landers of Kerry band Archmotors.

David Blaize lives on the beachfront down in the heart of rural Kerry and writes songs of love and loss inspired by the beauty of his surroundings. Blaize draws on influences from the fifties and sixties to write heartbreakingly beautiful melodies time and time again. Lyrically and compositionally, he has the unique gift of making it all look so easy, as if the songs have always existed. ‘You Make Me Feel Blue’ is an example of this. Reminiscent of McCartney at his peak it is a modern classic that deserves an audience.”
