Several Arrows Later
SEVERAL ARROWS LATER represent the most immediate and rocking expression of matt pond PA's music yet. His lyrics push through the confusion of city life (a smaller sky, throttling expectations and terrible parties) and the comfort of country life (the familiar, the green and the seasons), both asking and telling US why we act the way we do. But it's not a call to action; it's a plea against apathy. Musically, it shines away from the redundancy of present day rock posturing yet remains totally immediate, relevant and ridiculously catchy.
