The song would make a wonderful musical bookend for Kate Bush’s classic track, Wuthering Heights. If the latter captured the aftermath of Catherine’s love, Oh Love is a perfect companion for the genesis of complex masculinity.
The sweeping nature of the arrangement feels inspired by the freshness and oppressive openness of the moors, the lyrics occupy an altogether more urban terrain, but both are united by the crystal-clear emotion of Phildel’s achingly yearning vocals.
