Ought – “Men For Miles”

Ought – “Men For Miles”

Ought’s upcoming sophomore album kicks off with “Men For Miles,” which hits the ground running and leaves no time for fucking around. There’s the escalating energy in the high-low notes, the way Tim Darcy feels like he’s stumbling over his words but never misses a beat — when they reach the chorus, you can practically hear them exasperatedly climbing the monument and staring out into the vastness and taking it all in: “There were men for miles, there were men for miles, and does it just bring a tear to your eye, a tear to your eye, a tear to your eye…” And later, when Darcy speak-sings, “Excuse me, do you think there’s a chance to bring this whole fucker down?,” it sounds like an inciting call to action. Listen below.
