We all make mistakes. None more so than in our early teens. Powered by hormones, puberty, and growth spurts, the mind can’t control all the emotions and feelings. When you throw love into the equation, it makes life a little more complicated. You start to neglect friendships, miss out on unforgettable memories, and cancel family events all for that secretive kiss in a significant other’s bedroom. It’s all fun until it becomes toxic and starts to contaminate your self-esteem, your happiness, and the way you see yourself and the world. Capital Soireé examine this phenomenon on their latest dream-pop banger, Side Of Town.
The Chicago-based band are no stranger to the indie scene. Their latest EP, Being Lonely, was released earlier this year and cemented the act as a one to watch. Fortunately, you can put your binoculars down, as their new single, Side Of Town, is out this Friday. An enigma of a song, the dreamlike guitar riffs, the softly spoken words, and the delicate drum patter will induce dance moves in the most miserable listener. On your third play, however, the lyrics will hit you hard in the feels, providing flashback after flashback of the intricate web of emotions that accompany love and youthful mistakes. The tissue box will be out, and past insecurities will reemerge throughout this two minute and fifty-seven-second heart-piercer.
Get ready to experience sadness, sorrow, happiness and joy, Side Of Town is a parable of the emotions and sensations surrounding love. Enjoy.
