I came across this song recently and really liked it. I’d never heard of Peter Yorn before, and I wasn’t a fan of ScarJo’s previous musical outing, but this was a pleasant surprise. Their voices blend nicely and this song is like a bittersweet slice of summer.
I listened to some more tracks from their Breakup album on Spotify and there are some very nice songs on there. Scarlett’s voice sounds quite processed on Relator, but sounds more natural in some of the other songs.
I like the video too, with its sepia cast and interesting focussing (e.g. I liked the bit when the camera focussed on his beard).
