    The lyrics feel kinda hipster gen Z or something to me.

    I love her duet with Matt Berninger though. Probably because her voice is awesome and she didn’t write the lyrics.

    As always, intelligible lyrics remain the bane of vocal music. Said this before, but I wish I didn't understand English so I could enjoy a wider scope of content without being distracted by meh lyrical content.

    @E_Schaaf I find I can suspend lyrical disdain at certain moments. But it's always a shock to the system when I snap back in and begin to process the words I am hearing. It's that wince line, man. Metal has a lot of that too. If the sound itself breaks gaze for a second, it hits me like a camera flash.

    The older I get, the more instrumental of all genre I listen to. I think experience/maturity has alot to do with it - I'm just not that moved or interested in the emotive navel gazing and that which tends to impress > 30 year olds...

    I think the reality is that a lot of music gets hype these days because (young) people find the singer relatable. Clairo, Soccer Mommy, Snail Mail, Phoebe Bridgers, etc.

    I don't think there's anything wrong with that, but it more has to do with the personality and personal reactions to music then the actual music sometimes. Eh I mean, as long as people are enjoying themselves.

    Nice, but... Nope. She isn't dragging me away from Joni Mitchell.

    I love songs with good lyrics. Music and poetry, hand in hand. And good lyrics often stand alone /as/ poetry.

    But I spend a lot of time listening to songs in languages I don't understand at all.
