Release Type: User Audio Type: Single-track Reductions: Yes (Auto/CAT) Pitched Vocals: Yes Vocals Gender: Male (3)
The Shins are the breakout indie group once discovered by Zach Braff, featured prominently in his acclaimed independent film Garden State. Nothing had caught my attention by them after that until this song. The lyrics really painted a vivid picture of how it can be difficult to be an independently thinking female in a world dominated by predetermined ideals. The lead singer James Mercer wrote this song as a message to his three daughters; and it's a great piece of music to give to those you want to see follow their own voice and bend the world to their will.
For Rock Band, it's a nice "in the middle" song that will be a great addition to your alt-indie collection.
