Nada Surf - Are You Lightning?


Today's song recommendation is "Are You Lightning?", a track on New York indie rock band Nada Surf's 2008 album, "Lucky". Lead vocalist Matthew Caws sings of a protagonist falling terrifyingly in love: "I see you in my sheets, I see you in my sleep / I see you with something that's funny I hear you I almost weep / I see you from my steps, you're walking up my street / But just look at the size of you". "Are You Lightning?" is a mellow yet dynamic indie rock song, with slide guitar flourishes. In the last third of the song, "Are You Lightning?" builds up to a heavier rock sound, with ghostly coos entering into its haunting soundscape.
