I was heartbroken yesterday to find out that one of my favourite bands, the Maccabees, is calling it quits. Sure, it’s going to be interesting to see what each band member does next, but it’s depressing to think of what we’re going to miss out on in the future from a band that worked so well together. ‘Child’ is the perfect example of what makes their music a cut above the rest. The use of a horns section in this genre makes me very happy. Listen to how the song goes from these gorgeous vocals at the 2:30 minute mark, to an all-out assault. And just before you think you have the song all figured out, the guitars and drums change things up right before the song comes to a close. The sound is massive on this track! I also highly recommend checking out the music video.
