It’s a lyric with a melancholic sense of purpose, while the lead vocal is left to flower unaccompanied in the churning counterpoint between guitars and rhythm section. Yeardley gives us a classic indie rock sound, with a strong band core and some orchestral flourishes.
Where this song truly shines is in the synergy between vocal affect, song arrangement, and exceptional imagery. This track resonates as a pure expression of the deeply human tendency towards acknowledging the mess we’ve made.
We are left with an endearing track that attaches a sense of resolution to the bubbling self-reflection, and adds a hint of Ben Gibbard to the vocal delivery.
