Alice

Album: Songs For Imaginative People (2013)
  • Darwin Deez mainman Darwin Smith wrote this song for his Australian lover, Alice, as well as his friends Rani and Meg whom he keeps in touch with through Skype marathons. He told NME: "I wrote this early on in the album process. I found it nice to revisit the classic inspiration of 'writing a song for someone' which had been absent from my approach for just long enough."
