What begins like a dusty Pearl Jam-inspired ballad turns on its head into a chugging, tightly wrought, mid-tempo rocker. Over wet, snapping, distorted chords Caleb sings, “I’ve got a friend/ shows me all the good times/ tells me when I’ve been better/ chews me up and spits me out/ and then watch my eyes hold/ he sings a song when I’m gone…gone…gone…”
The backbone of the song rests in the two strongest elements in KOL’s arsenal: Caleb’s fabulously expressive voice and Matthew’s unyielding ability to coax absorbing guitar nuances out of riffs and figures from what might be ordinary in other players’ hands.
The chorus is relatively undefined, but as a pastiche of hodgepodge ideas and styles, shadows and lights, it’s an arresting listen.
