“Sober” – Lorde

This song has some really fascinating layers to it. Firstly, it sounds stripped down at a lot of points but then it escalates and the background sounds become alive like the toys in the Toy Story. Then, the drums are in full effect, accompanying the horns, and it all sounds so triumphant and elegant. After that the song de-escalates. This track definitely does tease the listener. It seems like its about to explode and it just simmers and simmers, and then brings the energy down. There’s a beauty in that.
