TUNE Sonny Hell - Swimming In Dark Water
Swimming In Dark Water (the “B-side”) is - in my twisted mind - a bastard lovechild of Bruce Springsteen and Vampire Weekend. Don’t ask me what that even means.... and it makes me want to vomit to admit that, but it’s true, so fuck it. The thing I like about this song is the way the simple, kinda cheesy V-IV-I chord progression slowly morphs throughout the song, and the main guitar hook changes with it, so by the end it has devolved into a much uglier and meaner sounding song and riff... in parallel with the lyrics, which are about the breakdown of a relationship. The guitar solo is a nod to Chuck Berry.
