so, today’s song is an interesting creature filled with conflicting sounds. entitled moth-eaten memories by exlovers, it’s filled with sugar-sweet vocals, loud, grungy guitars, stark angry drums, and a melody that’s a bit confused on whether it ought to be angry or wistful. it’s also got a bridge that brings the song to a halt before kicking it back into high-gear.
sound fascinating? it should, because it is.
exlovers, a quintet from london, have a sound that is reminiscent of the early 90’s – a bit lo-fi in places, somber in tone, yet with enough of a peppy kick that it instantly draws you in. they’ve also got a really subtle boy-girl harmony going in their songs that’s very likable.
well, every wish is your command
you say the strangest things i will never understand
if you see me anymore
then remember me the way i was before
