The Tinderboxers are here for fun times and good vibes only. The tone of that melody is super fun and full of personality. There's this irresistible charm about it too. In love with this and the way you've wrapped your lyrics around it too. "Why waste my money when my life is like a movie", "why write these songs when nobody's gonna pay me". Love those two lines. Love the way they stand out. The singalong / psychy feel at the end is super cool too. Definitely a band to keep a strong eye on.
