They come as small intrusive bildbrev on the record. Barely has given up the chinese lanterns on the balcony, granbarren kept quiet down on the parquet and nyårsflaskorna klirrats the bottom of the återvinningshålen until some bastard instagrammar a poor struggling, long hanging solstrimma and cheering ”Hooray!
