I'll tell anyone who'll listen that Cal (Candy) is a genius. He burps choruses. His signature makes songwriters weep.

Bloody hell, Cal. You've melted my damn heart. That merging of sun-drenched jangle with existential sadness is so very The Drums, but you put this scuff on it that I just love. I do love being happy and sad at the same time.
