This song satisfies me. It has everything I want in a song for my journey to work each day. It’s big and atmospheric enough to make any subway journey fun. The band have always held a place in my heart and this may well be some of their best work yet.
I grew up in the suburbs and this video gave me some serious flash backs when I first watched it last week. From cookie cutter homes to ghost riding my bike – it’s perfect. Spike Jonze has done it again – what a great video to go along with an incredible track from an amazing album.
I’ve heard jDiggz name a million times in my years working music – but until now I am not sure I could have picked him out of a line-up. He’s got presence and reminds me of a young Jay Z in this video. His flows and moves are slick and natural. This combo, on paper, doesn’t appeal to me – but it works and is one of my favourite songs and videos of the year thus far. The Scarborough Bluffs have never looked so good.
Good music is good music.
