Song of the Day 46: Manchester Orchestra - Deer

Let's get back to this, shall we? Manchester Orchestra's fresh release, Simple Math, sways between tragic and fascinatingly melancholy as it explores each up and down that comes with depression. It begins fittingly with 'Deer', a song that sets the tone with reverberating atmosphere and dream-like flow. Lead man Andy Hull alone and deprived of human interaction as he pleads into the mic with a fragile tone that lends itself to the atmosphere perfectly. Simple Math is an album worth a spin that hits magnificent highs, but never quite sustains them.
