Yesterday was my July 4th celebration, and today I woke up with a horrific hangover. Seeking relief from the treachery of this condition, I turned to Soundcloud and played the new Planetarian track. As Derek Simpson repeated the song’s only lyric, “Let me mend you back to health” over and over again, I started to think “Okay, Derek, I will let you mend me back to health. As long as I don’t have to do anything that goes against my core value system, I am pretty much open to any sort of help, my G.” And the song really did help me. There is something calming and reassuring about the repetition of that one lyric.
It makes me feel safe. There, I said it.
Planetarian’s new album In Mind will be out this upcoming Friday (July 10). “Mend” is its second single.
Let me mend you back to health
