SONG PICK: Love Crumbs – Ellipses
Folk-rock and Americana quintet Love Crumbs delights with the instantly appealing “Ellipses,” a song about human connections and relationships. Based in Massachusetts, the band creates timeless, skillfully crafted songs with a touch of a nostalgic vibe, reminiscent of Fleetwood Mac and the likes.
The song’s title “Ellipses” is intriguingly mysterious and we wanted to know more. We asked Michael Dubuque (songwriter, rhythm guitar, vocals) about it, who says:
“Ellipses” is about trying to connect with someone and not being able to despite the best of intentions. It’s about the things that aren’t said or are left unsaid. I had a relationship that ended kind of suddenly, and I kind of didn’t know why. It was a meaningful relationship to me. The person was typing to me (as evidenced by the “…”) but I never got to hear their response.
Now this explains the ellipses and the melancholic undertones in the truly gorgeous song. Might be the nod to the otherwise meaningful relationship that now longer is. Kudos to artists who can make the best out of such experiences! Aside from Michael Dubuque, the band is comprised of Alison McTavish (lead vocals), Scott Wolfram (bass), and not in the photo Gordon Clark (songwriter, lead guitar, vocals) and Ryan Behan (drums).
