‘1915’ starts out with deliciously laavely bass to savour with sweetly, smooth caramel guitar to match the food metaphor. The collection of voices making up the vocal collide seamlessly with the slightly disjointed tune of Edwyn Collins, and the guitars have a similar Orange Juice jangly. Fire Island Pines give you a warm, friendly feeling as they tuck the listener between perfect strings and charming vocals. It has a slightly jazzy vibe and lyrics many lovers are too honest to speak ‘I can’t love you, all the time, so it’s up to you, if you want to stick it out… I don’t want you to labour under the wrong impression but I’m in love with my own mind.’ Fair enough to them if they are in love with their own minds, this song is proof enough that their minds are pretty damn good.
