Kinda calm and toned down... sleepy almost. A slow driving song. Or something you can clean the house to. But only if you live in The Suburbs. Kidding. Lame joke. I guess it's a good single for a third album, but I didn't just love it. Put "The Suburbs" on at night and it'll probably lull you into a pretty dream state. Get your hammock ready.
This is doubly upbeat. Much more so than "The Suburbs" while being a little more typical of the Arcade Fire sound. But not by a lot. Maybe it's just the quality (ripped from the radio - the only version out there right now) that makes it sound not as loud as it should be. Or was intended to be. I don't know. Both these babies need to grow on me.
If you haven't seen any YouTube videos by the PS22 Chorus you need to. SERIOUSLY. Every cover these kids is straight up wonderful. Their latest is an original song called "Sing Yourself" with Travis Garland as a soloist. Like everything they do, it's gorgeous and watching them sing is a joy in itself.
It's so lovely to see videos that have actual stories behind them these days. Even though it's a story that's been told ten million times (kid with a dream is told to give up, but fights on til they succeed). The production value is beautiful... maybe even better than the song and it's obvious 'Keep Hope Alive' message.
