Riff: Zedd feat. Foxes – “Clarity”

Jun 18, 2013

If our love is tragedy, why are you my remedy?/If our love is insanity, why are you my clarity?

from Clarity lyrics by Zedd

“Clarity” is a solid EDM fist-pumper about a love that is paradoxically therapeutic and “tragic.” Foxes’ Kayla Bell hits the choruses, but the verses have a little too much of the pre-pubescent pout we’ve come to know and be stuck with since Carly Rae Jepsen decided to exist.

    HUE IM KURL URNERST N AYE CAN ARTICULATE WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY LOOKING LIKE A GIGANTIC ASSWAD

    • Karl

      I guess I can’t argue with that, “Disgruntled.” Although, I wonder what exactly makes me a “GIGANTIC ASSWAD.” Is it simply because I didn’t like parts of a song that you enjoy, or are there specifics you can mention?
