Stuck on Repeat: Boy on Guitar- Things get Better

Boy on Guitar Things get Better

I read an interview around 10 years ago in which Ben Gibbard said he hoped to write a song that flowed as well as “Float On” by Modest Mouse. I probably didn’t think about that review again until I heard this song.

The guitar is light and rhythmic in the mould of Josh Jones’ Evangelicals and the vocals from Genesis Jennings soft and vulnerable without being twee. Just gorgeous to listen to over and over again.

I heard this first on the indie rock playlist, as ever the ultimate resource for the best music that isn’t Taylor Swift or whatever the devil you listen to these days.
