Bravestation :: "White Wolves"
Lost in some austere and freezing cold corner of the musical frontier, Bravestation tap the textural angularity of Foals and the wide open arrangements of Local Natives. The aesthetics drive to the center of something unrequited, in the chorus represented as critical metaphor, "you're missing the rain/you're wishing for rain," while not necessarily promising resolution or the hint of hope on the horizon. The choosing of imagery for this desolation is arbitrary and in its indiscriminatness, it is beautiful. The song, all these moving parts and pebbled rhythms, trembles toward an inward collapse before holding together and threatening to explode, all alone in the middle of nowhere.
