Tusk Tusk – ‘Crazy Little Birthmarks’ (mp3)
Dominic Fagan used to live in Brisbane and play keys for Screamfeeder singer Tim Steward’s solo project. Like so much Brisbane talent, he up and moved to Melbourne and has been writing sweet pop songs like this ever since.
Rollicking finger-picked guitar and choral backing vocals support Fagan’s plaintive, unsteady voice as he repeats the song’s refrain – somebody help to hold this poor girl down. ‘Crazy Little Birthmarks’ isn’t an angsty whine though – it’s more a suggestion than a panicked cry for help.
