Gutsy, honest songwriting about excruciating heartache, Melbourne’s Dogood nails it with Hate Expectations. Alexandra Duguid, AKA Dogood, manages to punch WildnFree straight in the guts with her jangly guitar-pop ode for the lovelorn, a sensational effort for only her first single.
There’s something about these lyrics…
I know I’ll never be enough for you, though I deserve better, that much is true, our almost will haunt me, what could have been will taunt me, I know I’ll feel better eventually.
And these ones…
I’m embarrassed off all the nice things I’ve said to you, although I mean them, every word I’ve said true, and I’ll obsess in this mess for some time, although it’s over in my mind, I know it will all be fine.
…that hits home. Sigh, we’ve all been there, right? Right?!
