Lokrin O’Reilly and Melanie MacLaren’s song, Clearance Aisle, is about two people who are both lonely and searching for direction in life. They’re drawn to each other, but they also know that their relationship is ultimately doomed.
The lyrics are so beautifully written that you can feel the characters’ pain and sadness as they navigate their way through this dark world.
I like the sound here. The guitar provides a fuzzy backdrop for Lokrin and Melanie’s ethereal vocals, while the percussion gives Clearance Aisle a subtle rhythmic punch. And the French horns add a touch of nostalgia that takes the song to a whole new level.
