idiot mitten - "Darlin'"

Delightfully strange, "Darlin'" combines the serene acoustics of fingerpicked guitar plucks and orchestral strings with crackling vocoded singing. The song is particularly blissful when it opens up with additional strings at 0:40, as idiot mitten sings:

"I'll never do what you say I'd do
that I would leave this home for somewhere new
I'd lay down over thorns for you
if you'd just please believe in me."
A tender love song with a unique vocal flair, "Darlin'" teases the brief warmth of a fleeting summer romance. It's over in a flash, but entirely deserving of repeated listens.
