There's a defiant and palpable resilience in Neighbor Lady's new single "Let It Bleed." You can hear the strength in their impassioned cries and in the steady rise of their "country-kissed" indie pop. The track begins quietly, the only sign of what's to come heard in an unexpected jolt of percussion. It all changes with one line - "You said you'd do anything for me. But you hardly even know me." It's a whispered kiss-off, that signals a change. Suddenly, the song picks up, the energy is forceful and strong. "You have no idea what's gotten into me," their melodies repeat. It's as if the band throws off the weight of everything that ever held them back; keys come rolling in, folksy guitar dances to its own song, and a line repeated - "I'm getting sick and tired/sick and tired/of this shit." "Let It Bleed" is begging you to turn up the volume, to twirl about in your private headspace with middle finger raised to whatever has been holding you back. Just let go and "Let It Bleed".
