this song from bat for lashes new album the haunted man really shows off what she as an artist is all about. i personally love songs that sound sad but are actually not. maybe i’m crazy but it plays to the idea that everything can be beautiful, it just depends on your perspective. it’s the kind of song that makes me smile; bitter sweet in a sense.
i am a fan of her previous albums, even though i felt some tracks to be a little monotonous. her voice and accent are very beautiful, and her lyrics are very poetic and well written; straight to the point with a lot said in between the lines.
