George Gadd - Women I Belong To
I’d say this was the song that gave me the momentum to start the ‘Thorneloe’ EP properly. The night before I wrote it, I went to go see two of my personal idols (Brian Fallon (The Gaslight Anthem) and Dan Andriano (Alkaline Trio)) on The Revival Tour and, at that point, I just wanted to somehow become them. I wrote this song, sleep deprived, on the train back to Birmingham and wrote the chorus quickly as soon as I got back to my room and immediately went on a short tour of the block of flats I lived in and played that song to everyone that I knew was in. This is the song where I get the most people asking me about the lyrics behind it, it goes from being about past girlfriends (“We waltzed in the hurricane of a love that decayed”) to flings (“From the fire escape, to the coldness of your skin”).
You can hear ‘Women I Belong To’ and the rest of ‘Thorneloe’ over at bandcamp.
