“Girl in My Head,” the second single from the forthcoming debut album Cruisin’ and Swingin’ with The Moneygoround, will be released February 2.
The Moneygoround is a new five-piece group from Charlottetown featuring Dennis Ellsworth, Katie McGarry, Dan Currie, Sam Langille and Josh Langille.
“It’s like the weight of the world swinging on a string of pearls / when I’ve got that girl in my head,” sings Ellsworth, bridging rock n’ roll, psychedelic, folk/roots and Americana with a memorable melody and guitar hook. “I’ve waited and I’ll wait here again.”
“This song is a snapshot of the adage: absence makes the heart grow fonder,” Ellsworth said. “It’s about longing. Not always as a result of physical space, but as the first verse indicates, sometimes of emotional division. Despite these situations, and no matter what follows, commitment and love are the real winners here. At its core, this is a song about devotion and dedication.”
Cruisin’ and Swingin’ with The Moneygoround, is scheduled for release in Spring 2022. Produced by longtime Ellsworth collaborator Joel Plaskett, the album was recorded at Fang Recording in Dartmouth, NS.
