Silhouettes You’re Bound To Mistrust
To my ears, Grass House is basically like The National if they were actually British, a bit jauntier, and had a far more melodic and colorful lead guitarist. So, yeah, I like them a lot more. It’s a little unfair to cast them in this light, but that “poetic deep voiced gentleman” thing is there, even if they don’t completely surrender to a dour vibe. My favorite thing in this song is certainly that lead guitar refrain, and the way it comes off as towering and grand, but also somewhat sly and knowing. It turns the entire song on its side, and somehow makes the vocals seem a bit more rakish.
