Scottish Pop Song of the Day #36

Randolph’s Leap – Going Home (2010)

It’s all about context.

When I first heard this song on ‘Battleships and Kettle Chips’ (Olive Grove), the debut EP from Glasgow six-piece Randolph’s Leap, I associated it with the hills beside me, the woods behind me, the water and rocks and nature that shape my sense of location, and where I belong.

By placing the song on ‘Love Letter To Japan‘, however – a brilliant fundraising compilation for the Japanese Tsunami Relief Effort featuring The Pastels, BMX Bandits, Eugenius, Bill Wells, Alasdair Roberts, Momus and many more – the song has become a global homage to the importance of our roots and surroundings; to the landscapes that we take for granted, and that we would be lost without.
