What is the song about?
By reading the lyrics I can tell that the song is
about love and to a loved one or an ex.
The plot is hard to tell, because the genre is
alternative/indie conventionally the songs
aren't clear to everyone you have to look
deeper for the meaning, this song follows this
It is also hard to tell the plot without a music
video showing us one benefit of a music video.
The lyric regularly refer to ‘arguing and
fighting’ which makes me think its about an
Structure of the song
The song doesn’t conform to mainstream music. The
sound of the main singer is very different to popular
music it fits in with their genre of alternative.
The song is very slow and does pick up pace when it
hits the chorus however then switches back to slow
again, this is different to mainstream as conventionally
as the song goes on the faster it becomes.
Lyrically the song is very short there isn't very many
words they all are repeated
Language used in the lyrics
Throughout the song there is a lot of repetition in the chorus’ and other verses’, for
example the lyrics ‘we argue, we don’t fight’ is repeated many times the same with
‘stay awake on the middle of the night’
This makes the message of the song and the point they want to put across more
powerful for the audience
The relationship between the music and the narrative?
Typically in a alternative genre the music videos are different to the ones of pop
or charted music where conventionally the narrative is more clear,
however there is no music video that fits in with this video so we have to make
our own assumptions about the narrative.
Due to it being more difficult to figure out the meaning of the song this fits in
with the genre and style of the music
How the song makes me feel
The song is about a very emotional moment we don’t know whether it is about a
personal experience however it still is full of emotions
The pace of the song helps with the feeling of the audience but it being slow makes it
more emotional for the listener
Impact from the voice
The voice if the main singer of the band in very
unique to other artists that are already out
there. The voice is very powerful and helps
create emotion in audience
The certain parts if the song her voice is very
gentle fitting in with the pace of the song
and the lyrics and then other times there
was a big emphasis on certain words making
it more powerful
