Riff: She & Him – “Snow Queen”

May 7, 2013

I’m so cold/But I’m nice beneath the ice/So deep, never doing as I’m told

from Snow Queen lyrics by She & Him

A quick burst of mariachi towards the end may set this apart from the stream of similar brill-building numbers that permeate Volume 3. But Deschanel’s unconvincing attempt to present herself as some kind of ice maiden falls flat, while Ward’s production is the pure definition of coasting; [LISTEN].
