"On a winter's day" is based around a musical theme which was constructed by stealing the opening chords of a very famous pop song. These few chords provided a sketchy foundation which was approached and abandoned in several ways. On a winter's day revolves around the sound of the acoustic guitar. The acoustic guitar is the number one instrument used when musicians try to create the illusion of intimacy and authenticity, and the decision to reflect a very personal experience through acoustic guitar is a playful way of criticizing as well as acknowledging that myth. "On a winter's day" tells a story of love. The setting is Gothenburg, Sweden.
