Devendra Banhart – It’s Not Always Funny (Official Audio)

“While writing this song I was thinking about over-consumption, a kind that goes beyond objects, and starts to pig out on emotions … it’s never kindness or joy is it?”

“I was thinking about the touch of your eyes … and now that eyes have become our faces, I find going to the supermarket the most intimate experience … since the lockdown we have been hyper developing the language of looking into each others’ eyes …

“I was thinking about how they say it’s important to laugh, especially when there’s nothing to laugh about, I’m not sure if that’s true but it stuck with me.”

What do you think?
