mp3: "Thick Skin" - Bellows

The music of Bellows has been a constant security blanket for me, with their previously released Blue Breath soundtracking many of early morning and late night musings. "Thick Skin" is the first single from a brand new release Fist and Palm out 9/30 on Double Double Whammy. It's said to mark a drastic change in sound, and the joyous pop found in this first glimpse is a definite mark of that new identity. Despite its sunny sound, the lyrical content is much more poignant, a search for something you won't find and the surprising ability of emotion to appear, even when we think we're "thick skinned."
