‘Hope You Like Getting Old’ by Subways on the Sun is pensive, melancholy alternative rock with a dynamic, melodic approach. The band describes the tune as about their “collective struggle to accept the passage of time and identify the voices in our lives that are worth listening to.” These guys do a really good job of letting their environment develop, fill up the sonic space and wash over the listener. This is a slow simmer that never comes to a boil, but leaves you with a clear sense of the uncertainty and tension the group sets out to convey. There’s a sweetness to this track that cuts the pensive, melancholy nature of the piece. It’s kind of like adding sugar and cream to a to a slow-brewed cup of coffee. This is an strong track from an excellent band. Check out ‘Hope You Like Getting Old’ below!
