Arizona Young - "Another Life"

A shuffling folk track, "Another Life" moves along with a simple, plucky chord progression and minimalist drums, carried by the strength of Arizona Young's warm vocals. The production highlights the charming drawl, while airy droning tones accent the track with some background ambiance. Though some of the lyrics border on cliché, there are a few standout lines; in particular:
Billions of ghosts who lived decades faithful and hopeful
Who spent years in Sunday clothes
To be reassured they won't die alone
But they died alone
Overall, a pleasingly wistful and melancholy track, though it would benefit from a more satisfying conclusion.
