Limelight is an upbeat punky rocker with deep bass, thumping drums that sound like they were recorded in a garage (in a good way), and a vocal cameo from Manchester Orchestra and Bad Books vocalist Andy Hull that raises the bridge of the song to an epic sounding crescendo.
The song is held together by the strained vocals of Jeremy Bolm and fantastic textural guitar from Nick Steinhardt, who shows off with a very pretty and somewhat mournful slide solo in the coda of the song.
When you’re connected to someone long enough, and you’ve both suffered losses and been there for one another, there’s an understanding and a beauty to the quiet moments.

“When you’re connected to someone long enough, and you’ve both suffered losses and been there for one another, there’s an understanding and a beauty to the quiet moments. There’s a great line in Pulp Fiction when Uma Thurman boasts knowing when you have found someone really special, when you can just ‘shut the fuck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence” says Nick Steinhardt.
“I imagined that you’d be shamed for casually omitting that a day or two may go by without realising you haven’t kissed your partner, but at no point did things feel bad. You’re just in it and it feels like home.”
After rising to prominence with 2009’s …To the Beat of a Dead Horse, and 2011’s Parting the Sea Between Brightness and Me, up to their more recent forays into other styles with their art-punk 2013 album Is Survived By, the band promises a triumphant fifth album full of hope, optimism and love.
