A young trio with a complex and beautiful lyrical instinct brings us the strum-driven, deconstructed web of codependence that belongs at least in part to every couple. The vocal loop over a snare-heavy drum kit and the shimmering delay both serve as a conduit for that ineffable sense of enlightenment and release.
It’s a character study of the person who can’t get out of their own head; it might be your lover, or your roommate. A dream-addict, with their gears stuck in neutral:
Maybe we are all of us hiding from something; and maybe it seems obvious to someone else. With a sticky piano hook and a warm feeling of raw truth-telling this song might take you by surprise.
Vern Matz is an indie-rock trio from New England. This song is featured on our CHILL NEW Songwriters playlist.
