Today’s delicious song of the day is ‘Thoughts of Fools‘ from Kirkcaldy, Scotland-based alternative artist Mike Clerk. Coming off the release of Mike’s forthcoming album ‘The Space Between My Ears‘, due out for release later in 2020, this new single sees Mike continue to write for the sake of his own sanity, while also exploring the dark side of humans’ psyche.

Speaking on the release of the music video, Mike explains that the house featured in the visuals used to be a factory which made fishing nets in the 19th century, “[It] was built at Lower Largo on the South Coast of Fife in 1867 by Victorian entrepreneur: David Gillies”, Mike continues, “a descendant of Alexander Selkirk who spent 5 years as a castaway on a Pacific Island and became the inspiration for Daniel Defoe’s ‘Robinson Crusoe’.”

Two weeks ago I came across Mike Clerk’s ‘Thoughts of Fools’ for the first time and I have self-admittedly become obsessed with it – it’s a very good song, not just because the instrumentals feature heavy in the song, but also because Mike has a nice voice and this is a good introduction into who he is as a solo artist with a lot more to explore.
