Stricken City's last record ever, Losing Color, came out behind lead single, "Some Say". While the tragedy of a band on its last contribution is in play, the strength of the post-Yeah Yeah Yeahs, "Some Say" should certainly carry the band into some last fans' hearts. Opening with dissonant strings and brass, the band down shifts with pebbled drums and glittering synths. Each moment leading the song's first snare hits as it whirs and stumbles off the ground like a remote control helicopter, excited and unsteady in the air. The backing vocals, a series of "ohs", punch at the air as the band lets the arrangement spin mildly out of control and, eventually, into the dark.
