Phillip Alexander Nugent - "Girl in London"

A lovestruck singer-songwriter ballad with melodic similarities to Israel Kamakawiwoʻole's "Somewhere Over the Rainbow," albeit more reserved, Phillip Alexander Nugent's "Girl in London" is earnest, though a bit cliché, as tender ballads tend to skew. However, it's endearing in the way that only songs written for another person can be; you can see this being written, can hear it being nervously sung for a timid crush. This is the softest and most stripped-down of Nugent's tracks on his self-titled, and it sits comfortably between the idyllic twinkling of "Stargazers" and the more raucous twang of "Love in the Mountains." A pleasant tune which lends itself toward further exploration of Nugent's discography.

"Girl in London" is the fourth track on Phillip Alexander Nugent.
