"Better Off," the latest single from indie rock band The Darling Suns, draws inspiration from their folk roots and the laid-back guitar-driven vibes of War on Drugs. Prominent strings and an organic rhythm section provide the backdrop for this defiant and powerful title track from their latest EP.
"Better Off" combines themes of loss and heartbreak with an upbeat feeling of personal acceptance. This dynamic track moves from a melancholic verse to a chorus that bursts with hard-won catharsis, and shows us how beautiful the dawn can be - sometimes sadness is the just the journey we needed. The Darling Suns deliver a lovelorn and lonely tribute to the ones left behind that is full of guitar hooks, lost memories, and the feeling that we are always stronger than we think.
