Junior Boys’ New Album – Begone Dull Care – What It’s For + Lyrics

This is the duo’s third album, and the title is a reference to a short film by Norman McLaren, the pioneering Oscar-winning animator and electronic composer, who was fond of direct film animation (the technique of physically manipulating or painting on film frame by frame) and stop-start animation. His meticulousness is much like the band’s process of composing and sequencing their music. There’s a measured restraint that’s rarely employed in modern pop music and it’s the precision and restraint in the arrangements that serves to magnify what is there. And what is there is exceptional.

8. What It’s For

women like you know what to say
you know when to move
you know when you shouldn’t stay

women like you are never alone
they’re never too fast
and careful ’cause you say so
that’s what your face shows

women like you don’t need to hear it
i’ll whisper through the door
’cause you know what your heart’s for
know what’s your heart’s for

blind men like me can never hold on
then it’s gone
blind men like me don’t know how to behave at all

whenever you choose
the broken voice that i’ll assume
just creep to a crawl
and kiss me under each new moon
