This two song 7" opens up with a quiet, calm song. "Gypsy" is a pretty standard Tigers Jaw song except all the rock 'n' roll energy has been sucked out with a vacuum. Alongside the calmness of the song, one will quickly notice that, though the song has a level of gloom to it, there is hardly any ang.
This two song 7" opens up with a quiet, calm song. "Gypsy" is a pretty standard Tigers Jaw song except all the rock 'n' roll energy has been sucked out with a vacuum. Alongside the calmness of the song, one will quickly notice that, though the song has a level of gloom to it, there is hardly any angst in the vocals. It is, overall, a low key but nice song. Depending on my mood, it could hit the spot completely or it could fall into the background. That isn't a jab, but this song is tailored to a certain mood. However, despite the peaceful nature of the song, it still has a few tricks up its sleeve: the harmonies work great, particularly on the infectious chorus of "Lightning strikes / Maybe once, maybe twice" and, after listening to the majority of the pleasant song, there is some nice guitar work to change things up at the end. It's a night-in kind of song and it seems to accomplish what it was intended to accomplish. It doesn't overwhelm the listener, but it makes sure to keep things just interesting enough to hold their attention.
