CURRENT: Destroyer – “Girl in a Sling”

Kaputt remains one of the 2010s most essential albums, thanks to Dan Bejar’s fluid, striking compositions and its own signature sound. His new one, Poison Season, is shaping up to be a worthy successor. After the raucous “Dream Lover,” “Girl in a Sling” represents Destroyer at their most serene. Bejar’s lyrics and vocals are allowed to take center stage, and he pumps the song with warmth and community. He distills the song down to a central theme with incredible sincerity as he sings, “I know what you’re going through / I’m going there, too.” We’ll always be alone, but we’ll never be alone.
