Nostalgic guitars and sparkling synthesizers
Wormwood is an exuberant memoir about letting go and cutting loose.
The song discards its enemies, burns bridges and lights a cigarette off the collective ashes. The drums drive the song with blistering energy and lightness while the springy, nostalgic guitars and sparkling synthesizers create a melodic and swirling romance. Yum Yuck delivers the message and lyrics of the song with an uplifting, almost sneering decree of freedom:
“After this summer there’ll be no one left but me”.
