Dwelling on the faux-spiritualistic tendencies of modern consumerism the song questions the meaning of life and when he finds the answer he lands where most good pop songs do; Love.
Caoilian released his debut solo album ‘Teenage Jesus’ in May of this year and has been touring Ireland throughout the summer.
During live performances he is backed with an electric guitar, a sense of entitlement, a degree of casual sombreness, mixed with a joyous approach to playing music alongside his dynamic backing band, The Big Children.
Recorded with Brendan Fennessy (formerly of O Emperor) and mixed by Daniel Fox (Gilla Band), ‘Don’t Let Me Forget About Her’ is a slow but groovy piano tune that incorporates Sherlock’s deft lyricism, tongue in cheek delivery and a romantic frame of reference.
Caoilian says: “ Don’t Let Me Forget About You’ was a quick song to write because I’m constantly anxious and worried about death or a lack of meaning to life, who isn’t, but I’m also very positive about the power of love – so this is a song that acknowledges the finality of life but the longevity of love. The band was cooking when we recorded it.
