Mac DeMarco ‘The Way You’d Love Her’
We were recently invited inside the home of MAC DEMARCO for a quick peep into the workings of his forthcoming mini-LP, Another One. Super ecstatic for the eight-track album to drop, we’ve just been handed its first taste with the records opener, ‘The Way You’d Love Her’.
Ushering us in with a double snare drop, rays of sunshine break free from every activated string of DeMarco‘s jangly guitar. At first glance, this is a sonically euphoric entity, though the tone of the present ascending guitar riff experiences an emotional terrain, as it climbs up a ladder of fantasy before dropping back down to its bleak reality; a quality representative in the lyricism of, ‘The Way You’d Love Her’.
Penultimately about playing it safe by never telling your desired boo how you really feel about them, a theme of cowardice lingers in such qualms, yet is overshadowed by the jovial guitar solo echoing a glimmer of hope. By this stage, Mac DeMarco‘s lecture is a buried hatchet, as he’s allowed you one final chance to enter the vulnerability game and profess your love to another; because hey, you’ll never ever know if you never ever go!
After learning that life is just far too short, we can’t wait to experience the rest of Mac DeMarco‘s love tips throughout his forthcoming mini-LP, Another One; to be released on Friday, 7th August via Spunk Records/Captured Tracks.
