Why do we like this?
Queens treasure Freelance Whales, who jumped to internet stardom sometime in 2009, are back with a new single. The last time I had an opportunity to talk with the band, they mentioned that they were looking forward to the stage of their careers where the entire band could contribute material to their album (their lead singer had been responsible for the majority of composition on their successful debut, Weathervanes). For many bands, this is the most difficult stage of the life-cycle: producing a second album in a year or two (while original compositions may have taken 15 years to take shape).

Did they succeed? I think so. There's nothing too fancy to this song. It maintains a style similar to some of their meandering tracks on the last album, though the introduction of a stronger guitar line in opening and throughout is something I can't recall as having been done before. Oh, and the singing! The falsetto crooning appears to be gone in this song. In place, Judah provides a Beach House-esque tracking, quiet and calming to the soul. As winter slowly arrives, Freelance Whales are no doubt getting ready to set the tone again.
