Going For A Song: ‘Rain’

Merlyn Driver – Rain

I’ve been listening to Merlyn Driver’s debut EP – This is the Corner of a Larger Field – pretty much constantly since I heard ‘Rain’ on the radio a week ago. ‘Rain’ has a chorus that sticks in your head, but in a way you welcome rather than rue. I’ve chosen this live version over the recorded version for its communality – the audience ruffling leaves and singing on the chorus.
