song: "Old Town" - Say Sue Me
Just a few weeks ago we praised a recent release from Say Sue Me and Otoboke Beaver, and lucky for all of us, Say Sue Me has returned with more new material. "Old Town" is the lead single from the band's upcoming album Where We Were Together and it features more of their signature sunny pop.
The track revolves around the idea of desperately wanting to leave someplace that's grown familiar, but learning to appreciate what surrounds you in the meantime. The emotions that accompany a yearning to escape is reflected in the song's energetic pacing, with beachy, swaying strings and invigorated percussion keeping a steady pace. Meanwhile, dreamy, hazy vocals poetically portray the city that surround Say Sue Me, with melodies diving headfirst into currents of fuzzy, memorable instrumentals. It's a dizzying, fantastical moment of music, as if the band has taken your hand for a quick, whirlwind tour of a place they've grown to know.
