[mp3] BOAT: “Inside an Aquarium”
February 4th, 2013 by Matt
After teasing us for weeks with the Pretend to be BOAT covers album, BOAT have finally released a song from their upcoming Pretend to be Brave LP. “Inside An Aquarium” details life in the rainy northwest and the accidents it can cause.
MP3: BOAT – Inside an Aquarium
BOAT have tagged this as “sloppy pop” on Soundcloud and it’s not a bad choice of label. There’s no overthinking in BOAT’s production; they live and die on their songwriting and that’s what I love about their take on pop songs. They could have dressed the song up more, but then I might not have paid such attention to their lyrics until the third or fourth listen: “You cried when you realized it was good just to be alive.”
