TALLOWS – Sprawl (ft. Samantha Crain)

New Tallows!

You would think rock bands would shy away from naming songs “Sprawl” after Arcade Fire┬ámade not one, but two songs with the word in the title. Then again, you don’t know TALLOWS. With the first single from their new LP Waist Deep, this four-piece from Oklahoma City has boldly declared that they are, and this is a direct quote, “better than Arcade Fire was or ever will be.” Actually, that’s a lie, and I apologize for it.

“Sprawl” is a beautiful song. It will sound familiar at first, but I think that has more to do with how damn good it is than it does with any unoriginality. The song builds with a scientific exactness. It is grounded in purpose and will have you deeply invested in the story by the 1:42 mark exactly.

Soon, I’ll sprawl
