I love TVOTR. The range of music and sounds that they have produced in their career as a band, has somehow kept nearly exact cadence with my life stages. Dear Science holds a special place in my heart and has to be one of my favorite albums of all time. I am very eager to see what comes from them next since their departure with Interscope, and if this song is an indication, then I expect to be pleased.
If you have been following along with knochknoch at all, then you know we are quickly approaching the end one chapter of our lives, and desperately trying to control the turning of the remaining pages. Life is simultaneously exciting, frightening, overwhelming and electric. The change of pace at :50 of Mercy captures the push and pull of the day-to-day for us right now. I find myself cranking this song and frantically spinning, kicking and thrashing around the living room in an attempt release some internal tension.
Sometimes you just need to close the blinds, move the furniture and bounce around the room.
