I didn’t rush right away to listen to Bleachers’ album, Strange Desire, suffice to say, I think I put a lot of things on hold this year. And also, I’m in some sort of a musical rut. But this month, I managed to finally be ‘in the mood’ to listen to the album – and I actually, really, liked it. This weeks’ TOFW is the album’s first standout, “Wake Me.” Of course I think the line that hooked me was the repetitive, I can’t believe I captured your heart.
And I don’t know if this is totally imagined or what, but I do imagine this song was written or at least sung for Jack Antonoff’s girlfriend, Lena Dunham. Oh and trivia – if you didn’t know already – Jack is 1/3 of that band, fun.
