It Gets More Blue - girlpool

from the album Powerplant (2017)

I dig it when bands try new things, evolving their sound.

On the song It Gets More Blue, girlpool open with a tom-tom beat similar to something off The Cars debut album.  This is remarkable in that girlpool had - until this album - existed as a guitar and bass only duo.

Despite the three-piece newness, the beauty of Harmony Tividad and Cleo Tucker's vocals are ever present, offering a high-wire act in California harmony.  Together they create something a bit dreamy, a bit folky, a bit dirty.

The beat and dreaminess juxtapose the song's sombre theme of building up - and putting faith in - an unworthy lover.  I particularly dig the line "I faked global warming just to get close to you."

Throughout Powerplant, you hear talent evolving.  Can anything be better?
