Riff: Beach House – “Girl of the Year”

May 14, 2018

The feeling’s here/The pattern caught in a falling tear/And in the waves/One goes and the other one knows

from Girl of the Year lyrics by Beach House

The world of glamour and celebrity comes crashing down. On the surface it’s a carnival ride full of excitement and energy, but when the heart gets low and real life seeps in it can be an annoying distraction. The exhilarating highs and the depressing lows, can be too big a contrast for the average person to handle. It can leave them feeling empty and distant, a hefty price to pay for stardom.
