A Moth To Your Flame
I know lyrics are besides the point in a song like this – it’s really all about the tonality of the keyboard parts and the way the melodies seem to gently lean against the beat – but wow, this guy really isn’t messing around with the easy rhymes and clichés. I don’t think it hurts the song even a bit, and really, pop songs are pretty much the only place in life where you should be able to get away with fire/desire rhymes. Also, if you’re gonna make a song this chill, why should you stress about trying to say anything “original”? It’d just get lost under those gorgeous neon synth textures.
