Rai Thistlethwayte Shares The Inspiration Behind 'In The Summertime'

Rai Thistlethwayte from Thirsty Merc joined Gleeso for our Oztober lunch to talk about what Thirsty Merc is getting up to over the coming months, and the role of globalisation and the Internet in song-writing. 

Rai also shared the inspiration behind 'In The Summertime', stating: 

It's a song that's kind of a real cross section between my memory of the first summer relationship that I had... But then thinking about the real Australian experience, which it's all about the summer really in Australia. So that was just documenting what it was like to be growing up in Australia really, and those things were very relevant to a young, early twenties kid.
