Mipso: Captain’s Daughter

Mipso is one of those bands that I keep going back to. And while I most definitely have more than one song of theirs I count as a favorite, one that really stands out to me is called “Captain’s Daughter.”

Beyond the catchiness of the tune itself, the lyrics tell a fantastic story. To me, its structure reminds me of a fable in a lot of ways, with a small twist at the end that was always there in plain sight.

So long to my ocean home
So long to my dear sea, I’m going home
Wash my face in the salty water
I’ve got a date with the captain’s daughter

I really wish there was a better quality video of them performing this song. The video above is nice, but doesn’t really do the song justice. Here’s the official audio version.

// Edit: bummed to find out that I just missed an online concert of theirs. There have been a few artists I like who have taken an online approach, and I’m surprised I haven’t encountered more of this before now.
