Love in a big city is tough – at least according to Dan Caplen and his latest single.
But the Brixton-based artist also believes that love will over rule.
I’ve spent the last 10 years of my life looking for love in the big city.
I’ve swiped right, left, up and down – I’ve been out around town.
Once I thought I had it. In Chicago.
“Caught her eye in the corner store”
Love is a fickle thing, though. Especially in the days of Tinder, Grindr, Blundr, and Winderrr.
(The last two I made up, but you probably thought they were real).
Comparison is the thief of all joy, yet we have made all the choices available to us at all times.
How are we not to compare with every Tinder swipe, the joyous ringing of victory as the dopamine confirms another “Match”.
“She had a man in every borough”
Sigh. She did.
At least one other, on the North Side. A Marine.
Well, “Two Fingers” up to that. And no, not the flying birds in hate – but the two extended in peace and peace out ✌.
For those who know that feeling, stream Dan Caplen’s “Two Fingers” below:
Dan Caplen‘s “Two Fingers” is a bouncing, funk-fuelled groove exploring the experiences and temptations of those young and in love amidst a city backdrop.
“Two Fingers is about relationships in a big city… Temptation to stray is as easy as a swipe right on your phone, but I still believe that love over rules…” reveals Caplen.
I couldn’t agree more.
