The Park by These United States is one of my favorite songs of the year. The line that I’ve chosen to title the post after is one of the many reasons why. The Park just slowly builds to something. It’s a rock song with a little bit of alt country influences, something perhaps that is influenced by the Drive-By Trucks. I’m just spitballing at this point, but suffice to say, I’ve listened to it about three dozen times during this past weekend.
It’s such a mellowing song or at least it has a mellowing effect on me. I don’t know if it will affect you the same. Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy.
