Floral Shop - "ISO"

Indie rock which follows the trend of upbeat instrumentation with melancholy lyrics; if I didn't know any better, you'd be hard-pressed to convince me this isn't a Real Estate b-side. The guitars glitter throughout, and the vocal melodies are appropriately sullen. However, the track's highlights stem from its remarkably tight bass groove, as well as from the song's quieter, more contemplative moments: the repeated, droning chants begging, "How long?"; the subdued, thumping bridge at 1:50; and the eerie wonder of the vocal chorale in the song's conclusion.
