Three chords, two lines, some moaning and yelling and a breezy drum loop, that's the best way to describe the tangible parts of this song. But intangibly, there is so much more to this track. It floats across the record, the most laid back song on the Antler's Burst Apart, and you might not even notice it when you give it a listen, but you'll certainly recognize it the second time you hear it.
The version of this track featuring Neon Indian flows into the meaty parts of the original over a longer period and the jam at the end seems to linger on forever. While the original encapsulates all the same feelings in only four and a half minutes, it is not simply a smash and grab take on the emotions. Much like "Fallout" by Neon Indian, this track rolls along with a simplistic beauty unrivaled by few songs this year.
The song is best listened to as a release. The title of the track itself is a reference to this and the album gets it's name from one of the two lines in the song. Peter Silberman sings, "Rolled together and I'm about to burst apart." It's a utopian way of expressing the feeling of having every feeling rolled up inside, and that euphoric feeling of bursting apart when you release it all. Silberman's echoing screams are the best representation of this, as they express both pain and exhilaration as he lets everything go. But because he warns his audience that this is coming, it's as if he knows, and has no control over when it happens. It's as if he is saying that all the other songs on the record were simply written, but this is the one with the most tactile emotions. Three chords, two lines, some moaning and yelling and a breezy drum loop, that's the best way to let whatever is rolled together inside you burst apart.
