“There’s no joy in being right”

A Hollow Victory was one of the first songs David and I wrote for the current crop of music, but it took a while to get right: the superbly retro electro stomp was there from the outset but it took a bit of fiddling to find a version we both liked.

It’s a companion piece to Barren Ground, written earlier but set later: it’s about how you feel when you’ve been thrown under a bus that promptly crashed into a wall: what you said would happen happened, but there’s no schadenfreude: being proved right is a hollow victory in a war you didn’t want to fight.
