As kids, we’re told to eat our veggies, listen to what adults say, and never, ever speak to strangers. But most of us, when we become older, will naturally speak to strangers more openly and realise, sometimes these are conversations worth remembering. Whether the other person had a great story to tell, or you are just happy because you fancied the person you were talking to, it doesn’t matter, we all share something.
Australia, being a tourist country, we find ourselves talking to people from all over the world. Sometimes, they speak limited English and we use things other than words. There are so many ways to get a message across without words; your expression, your movements and just your general vibe. Throwing away words gives us a chance to share things in a new way. Thrupence has done away with lyrics (whether that is because he likes to stay instrumental or simply can’t sing, I don’t know) and explored a way of communicating through just sounds and pretty melodies.
