[PREMIERE] Dresses: Let Down
We have to come out and say it. Let Down does everything but make us feel let down. And we think that's a good thing. The lyrical matter on this tune isn't about sunshine and rainbows, but something heavier. But when it's paired with hooky guitars, bouncing rhythms, and a beautiful vocal presence, this uptempo number stays locked in our head. It's a sublime talent to inject light into dark places, and Dresses does it effortlessly. Check out what what the band has to say about the song below.
'Let down was intended to be a song about struggling with mental illness and how it can effect a relationship. But at the same time it's a lighter take on a dark subject where the person learns at the end to not blame themselves. Even though their struggle messed up a relationship, and they let the other person down, they didn't let themselves down. My hope for this song is that others who are struggling in a situation like this will hear it and be a little easier on themselves. I want Let Down to help others dealing with mental illness feel a little more positive and not blame themselves for things they can't always control.' - Dresses
