It’s Hard To Find by Twin Falls strikes a similar chord to Ben Francis Leftwich or Death Cab. I can be a sucker for lyrics and chords that speak out from a backdrop of music that hides away and this is just one such occasion.
The lyrics about struggling to find a good woman must surely be a little bit ironic (“she doesn’t do drugs but she does the pill” is too good) and I have half an ear open throughout for brushed cymbal to lean and then crumble into the mix but it never happens. But the simpler the better, you can hear the fingertips rearranging on the fretboards and keys before settling into a solid chord. This almost make me want to pick up a pen and carry on with my essay. Almost.
