song: "Expiration Date"- Boy Scouts
“Everything great has an expiration date,” Taylor Vick declares on the latest single from Boy Scouts. It’s her take on “all good things must come to an end,” and as the track from an upcoming Anti- release demonstrates, it serves as an engrossing, sentimental look at what the upcoming album might bring us. “Expiration Date” is recognition of finality, and while the idea of something you love, or something you hate, meeting its conclusion can seem downright scary, this single’s mood is airy, at times nearing celebratory. Vick’s vocals glide through soft strings, as if finally unweighted by all that once held her back, and the song’s ring of strings and brushes of percussion only bolster that feeling of weightlessness. New beginnings are beautifully terrifying, and “Expiration Date” is the stunning song equivalent of facing those fears head on.
