“You With That Short Hair”
There is something pretty fresh sounding about this track. It’s got a little of that Nada Surf “Popular” talking verse action. It’s also got that 90’s slacker-hypnotic thing. I’m hypnotized.
“You With That Short Hair” is admiration from a comfortable distance. The separation is evident, but not as pervasive as the attraction. The palpable nerves are endearing, if not entirely admirable. Reservations are not a sign of weakness, but a fact of reality.
