Have You Heard? Speedy Ortiz - Death Note
The kind of reflection we’ve come to expect as standard from the sharp songwriting mind of Sadie Dupuis.
“How many times do I have to say it?” asks an exasperated Sadie Dupuis repeatedly over ‘Death Note’s dissonant, unwieldy melody lines; strained howls of guitar feedback peeping through the gaps. An anime-nodding song about scrawled across diaries and churning revaluation, death notes gradually turn into love letters; pain turns into healing. By setting things down in pen, things can get better.
It’s the kind of reflection we’ve come to expect as standard from the sharp songwriting mind of Speedy’s frontwoman Sadie Dupuis. An outtake from the Northampton band’s categorically ace second album ‘Foil Deer,’ it’s a powerful sounding juggernaut of a track; cathartic, complex, and shadowey. There’s just no foiling this lot.
