Here is a theme that is emerging from this indie-driven pop landscape - the very real and vital process of finding a path through the darkness. It is a choice that will come to all of us, sooner or later: will we define ourselves as open to possibility, or let the world wash past us like so much rain on a roof.
Here, encased in a pop idiom that invokes images of a Spector-produced track by Darlene Love, brought to a modern production-sheen, is a classic case of owning the narrative. Once we describe a predicament, we can begin to craft an exit. The trap here is the stringent and puritanical hand of social construct, the hidden directives that collectively equate to a lack of choice.
