These clever, effervescent New Yorkers will lift the curtains on their third studio affair—instantly revealing a modern setting (“Morning’s come, you watch the red sun rise/the LEDs still flicker in your eyes”), while hinting at the collection’s timeless themes—of aging, faith, and companionship. You don’t have to be a hyper-literate listener to appreciate these tunes. They’re served with spoonfuls of gorgeous (“Obvious Bicycle”), breezy (“Everlasting Arms”), and ghostly melodies (“Step”). The lead single, “Diane Young,” is a ‘50s-inflected bopper whose title sounds like a double-entendre (“dying young”) and this concept of mortality segues into baroque-pop-fringed “Don’t Lie”—where frontman Ezra Koenig pleads for a lover to resuscitate their romance (“Young hearts need the pressure to pound / so hold me close my baby”). There are several religious references—expertly stitched through a three-song stretch (“Finger Back,” “Worship You,” “Ya Hey”)—reflecting a depth which is beautifully balanced by the album’s immediate, undeniable musicality.
