Song of the Day, October 7: Tuesday by the Hummingbirds

HummingbirdsloveBUZZToday’s song is a standout from the Hummingbirds beautiful debut, loveBUZZ. Guitarist Alannah Russack wrote Tuesday and takes lead vocal duties. Framed in two vignettes anchored by that most ambivalent day of the week, it’s a song of romantic tension with just the right amount of tentative hope.

But you know that I know you’ll be back
Your tail between your legs and a mixed up head

Russack is in fine voice, striking just the right emotional tone, while the other singers provide the most subtle of the album’s gorgeous harmonies. Pop music seldom aches this perfectly.

Enjoy this bittersweet song today.
