Hidden Gem: Shy Girls “Second Heartbeat”

Moody and raw…with a generous 80s sprinkle. (God, how I miss New Order…I know they’re “back” but it’s not the same; we can’t go back and recapture lost magic.)

Anyways: the ability to pack up and let go, to move on is powerfully intoxicating. When love starts, it's's rainbows and unicorns and inside jokes and many plans. And when it all goes wrong, it's awful, like cereal soaked in milk for too long. Two individuals marred in swamps like what is what was what could be, neither finding or understanding how to move on.

And if that's where you are's your anthem. What makes this beat so fun is the sheer freedom:
"I’m moving on now / I won’t have to see your face around / I’m not gonna wait for you to change when you want to."

I've read Superman long enough to can't save everybody. Sometimes you just gotta get out the bankers box and move along.
