Sunday Downloads: "Symptoms" by Atlas Genius

I love Atlas Genius.  I featured them back in December with their song Trojans. They have such a smooth sound and acoustically, they're even better.  If you're not following them on YouTube, you should be.  They are always uploading videos.  The lead singer even did an acoustic cover for The XX's "Islands", pretty sweet.

As to the song meaning, you have to have all the lyrics to figure it out.  In this acoustic version he left out the lines "Now we see what we’re gonna regret. How did the water get so cold?" which come after the "Waves can't break these..." line.  So think the song is about the hotness of a new relationship that over time, like all relationships, cools down.  And he's asking what happened.  That's my guess.  Anyway, enjoy the acoustic version but unfortunately it's not available for purchase, but the non-acoustic is.



Lyrics "Symptoms" by Atlas Genuis

It can do just what you want.
Summer tan these little symptoms you got.
Water cool these bones down, it’s so hot.
Waves can’t break these feelings like they're not.

So, sweetly, lover, won't you let me know?
Like a circle, round and round we go.

So we soldier on
With burning feet we run.
And here our bodies lay with Harrow Road so far away.
Water cool these bones down, it's so hot.
Waves can’t break these feelings like they're not.

So, sweetly, lover, won't you let me know?
Like a circle, round and round we go.[x2]

Sweetly, lover, won't you let me know.
Like a circle, round and round we go. [x3]
