I was so certain I had written a review on this film…
Anyway, it’s a medieval, Scottish-based Disney Pixar animation film about a young fiery red-headed princess named Merida (Kelly Macdonald). Her youth and freedom is threatened when her parents organise suiters to win her hand in marriage. She rebels and enlists a witch to change her mum (Emma Thompson) in order to change her fate.

After recently discovering the Kiwi brilliance that is Aldous Harding, I soon stumbled across this duet with another Kiwi icon, Marlon Williams.
It’s a highly melancholy song, sung in a tone of despair. But it’s so dreamy and relaxing to listen to. There’s no animosity in the song, it just sounds like pure surrender to a really bad situation. I think it’s a break up song… Continue reading
