Letting Up Despite Great Faults :: "Bulletproof Girl"

Letting Up Despite Great Faults are something of a one-trick pony. They craft these post-chillwave jams for listeners tied intimately to the notion of grinding and pretty failures. "Bulletproof Girl" is no different with lyrics like, "I can see every word bounce off you" and "If I fall, would you take me down?". The keyboards glow with intentional florescence, an arrangement of growing insistence that arrives at the band's best chorus, rising to the hum of highway noise and a final conditional, "If I find my way back ... ." The girl in the title is immaculate, not privy to nicks and dings, the object of getting lost and realizing only too late that you had no weapons against her.
