SONG OF THE WEEK #58: Felt - "Trails Of Colour Dissolve"

Felt were obviously one of the greatest, jangliest, most intelligent and underappreciated bands of the 80's, and "Trails Of Colour Dissolve" has always been a personal favourite. The song was released on their 1984 EP, My Face Is On Fire; nice rhythm guitar here, and of course Lawrence's irresistible, somewhat Lou Reed-esque vocals that make the actual melody even better than it already is.
The video might look out of place, but it does work in a completely bizarre way. Reminds me of an exhibition of modern art I once saw in Newcastle. There was a never-ending video with one man lying motionless on the floor and the other tap dancing all over him. Truly mesmerizing.
