Jason, my blogging partner in crime, passed on this We Are Wolves song to me yesterday, knowing it would be right up my alley. I guess writing about music together for two years has paid off. He was right on the money.
So, it’s pretty amazing how poignant two simple, alternating chords can be, as they set the stage for this electro-pop number that builds and builds, layering on a synth beat, gunning guitars, hard-hitting drums, and fuzzy vocals. This is a dance floor-ready track in the vein of Bloc Party or TV on the Radio that contemplates the permutations of the color blue: melting skies, midnight dreams, and bleeding nights.
Yet, it makes me very happy.
