SONG PICK: Shallows – Empire Of The Animal
“Empire Of The Animal” is the follow-up single to the wildly popular “Summer Sucks” by L.A. indie-pop duo Shallows, comprised of Dani Poppitt and Marshall Gallagher. There’s a beautiful melancholy to “Empire Of The Animal”, created by dense layers of ambience and percussion as well as vocals that give room to different emotions. Lyrically, the song is “the plea of a fiercely impatient lover, fed up with her partner’s apathy and refusal to fight for their relationship“. The track is as sad as it is optimistic, striking an amazing and highly addictive balance of these different moods and feelings.
