People Like You – “Thumbnail”

People Like You – “Thumbnail”

Boston five-piece People Like You blend jazzed-up horns with emo guitar riffs for a bouncy, introspective dive on new single “Thumbnail,” off their soon-to-be-released sophomore album Verse. It’s sweet yet melancholy in nature, and the band’s culmination of sounds work excellently together. The song’s lyrics and title derive from comforts and memories (“So you’ll find comfort inside your cotton bed sheets/ And I’ll find solace in everything surrounding/ And we’ll find home in between each other’s bodies”) and it’s unsurprising that the music has both a calming and wistful affect on the listener. Listen below along with previous single “Variations On An Aria.”
