Oh Terrible Hindsight and Hopeful Futures

Thinking about someone always leads to an overflow of emotions, especially when that person was a romantic involvement, the person you loved.

"Away" is immediately almost universally appealing for its deconstruction of regretful hindsight and the relatable hope of things working out again, but if you were to look further than the top layer you'd discover a song that takes the 2000's alt angst movement and gives it new sounds - new cleaner audio, a strong emphasis on lead vocals, and a track journey that shuffles from full band to acoustic (if you are listening to the full version.)

This song isn't just about the hindsight of a relationship, but also the hindsight of a sound we've kind of lost - the melancholic alt-indie sound - it's a callback and a good one at that! Invest in listening to this song more than once as it slowly unpacks its layers of alt angst catharsis.
