I've never gotten too familiar with Dawes, and I must say this is a pretty great introduction.  I love the vocal resolution to the chorus: a short, simple, beautiful harmony.  Every instrument has its place and the songwriting is just a double cherry on top.

I really really liked Dawes' last album "All Your Favorite Bands" and when I heard they were coming out with another record in short order, I thought they would qucikly become one of mine. This song like most of "We're all gonna die" falls too much into the pop sphere that I think Dawes should occupy less of and focus their attention on the bittersweet alt sphere. Thats just me.

Dawes is an acquired taste to begin with, and this is probably the most pre-2014 Dawes sounding Dawes song on the new record. I wish more of the record was slightly more like this, and less avant-guarde sounding, but I guess we all have to evolve.
