On “Shut Quarters,” strains like “I wish you would consider you will not petrify me, but you do / it can be alright” nearly look directed at herself, regardless of the song’s quick passionate solid. The music also is a single of several distinct shifts in creation type. While Arteries felt a minor smokey-eyed at occasions, flatline‘s pacing feels a lot more natural and organic on “Close Quarters,” drums share dramatic middle-stage with strings, pairing artfully with autotuned swooning from Blair to the conclude. “Right after THE STORM,” smack dab in the middle of the 5 tracks, is bright and hopeful, a vivid companion to the ridiculous catchy “Are You Wondering About Me??” and the album’s complete strike, “Unglued.” Bumping with a thoroughly infectious conquer, and deliciously dubby newborn-breakdowns, “Unglued” is consultant of what is actually turning into vintage Blair: all dogged devotion, all “are you missing me?” On flatline, Blair’s doe-eyed romanticism feels additional mature, and her fears truly feel like they are turning into fuel.
