This is one of several potential album cuts with Afro-pop and high-life influences: Here, distortion-free finger-picked guitars which sound straight out of Mali mix with a heavy bassline and psychedelic synths. “My Mum comes from Zimbabwe, so I spent a lot of time there,” says Martin. “I used to work in a studio where people played that.” More gentle than much of the album, it is built around a repetitive African-inspired guitar as a blissed-out Martin sings the touching and slightly psychedelic love song about “such a perfect day”.
Key lyric: “The sky could be blue, I don’t mind, without you it’s a waste of time.”
It is thought that Now My Feet Won’t Touch The Ground was an earlier/alternate title for Strawberry Swing, due to its presence in the song’s lyrics below.
