But in the excuse there lies the message
Suave pop pearl. One of the few Lifeblood b-sides that actually have finished lyrics instead of repeating the same verse ad infinitum. Musically it’s similarly more “organic” as the rest of the Empty Souls b-sides, keeping the same Lifeblood style and atmosphere but not relying on icecold production and high amounts of synthesisers. Contains some stylish guitar licks, chiming keyboards and, like its single counterpart Litany, is composed of a more slower and less jubilant verse and an uplifter chorus. Acoustic guitar glory in that chorus.
One tiny noteworthy mention that always enters my head when I hear the song is the drum sound. The groovy beat’s nicely partnered up with a lighter drum sound. Both together give this one a bit of an airy feel.
This is also the song that became Failure Bound once Nicky erased the vocal track and played it backwards.
