Ever try and reconnect with a really good friend from high school that you haven’t seen or spoken to in a few years? You meet up after work one day with a little apprehension, but once things get going, there is a certain kind of familiarity that sets your mind at ease. Good vibes start flowing as you reminisce over past glories, punchlines land where you expect them to, and their laugh is still the same as you remember. You start to question why you ever stopped hanging out in the first place. They didn't steal your boyfriend for a cheap one-night stand; they didn't start spouting off sexist, racist or homophobic crap; and they didn't borrow a large sum of money and never pay it back. You should do this more often! But then you start to realize that for all the comfort in this familiarity, it just isn't like you remember it. It all seems a little rehearsed and there isn't any real connection being made here. This is what it is like listening to Guidance by Essex’s Shortcuts.
