Any band named after Dostoyevsky characters has my immediate respect. And after seeing these guys in Chicago a few years ago, I’ve been a bona fide fan of their music ever sense. Sure, they write some catchy, feel-good tunes. But dig a little deeper and you’ll find some lyrical substance worth sinking your teeth into.
This song is just one example of what I’m talking about. It sounds sweet and innocent enough on the surface. But then some sneaky little nugget of profundity comes out of nowhere and tells you: “And if you find yourself somewhere between doubt and belief / Remember, remember to think on your knees.”
That’s some good songwriting. And some even better advice.
