Premiere: Jim Clements “The Comet I Was Waiting For”

Canadian singer/songwriter Jim Clements is preparing to release his new album, A Failure on October 26th. Surviving the Golden Age is excited to premiere his new single “The Comet I Was Waiting For.” Lyrically, Clements falls in line with other darkly humorous balladeers like Nick Cave or Destroyer. It’s hard not to crack a smile at lines like “Peggy, if that’s all there is/I don’t want to fucking dance/I want an apology from mom and dad/I want my money back” sung over sparse piano and strings. Clements’ acerbic wit and story telling ability makes “The Comet You Were Waiting For” enjoyable to listen to over and over again.
