The title track makes so much more sense deep in the album's tracklist and after the preceding songs. It offers this darker, industrial vibe to balance the dream pop/rock of the first half.
I agree, this song grew on me while listening to the 4 singles, but hearing it in the context of the album it makes much more sense and mixes it up.
As expected on first listen the 4 singles currently jump out from the rest of the album simply because I’ve listened to them so much and I know them all, this happens with all albums now we get 4 pre-release singles before an album drop, but a few more listens and these 4 tracks will settle into with the other album tracks.
First impressions, I’m instantly in love with Twin, The Rhythm, The Key and huge big shout out to the Till We Run Out of Air, these are all my favourites on first listen, I could have sworn I was listening to Cocteau Twins at various moments throughout. There were definitely some Liz Fraser vocal moments on the lesser known album tracks, which I instantly loved.
I can’t wait to dig deeper and get to know this album more, oh and excited to hear the bonus tracks on my dinked vinyl whenever it arrives.
Random, but for some reason The Key made me think of Glory from Buffy? This would’ve been the perfect season 5 soundtrack song played at the Bronze.
