Another week, another solid entry in Adult Swim’s 2013 Singles Program. This week, Marine Stern serves up another helping of her effervescent, bunny-quick alt-rock. “This Was It” is all swirling guitar scales and Stern’s trademarked jittery delivery, sending machine gun lyrics out like a gleeful spirit. Thematically, it’s strictly joy and love, as she sings “I’ve been sorting through a list of all our possibilities / And I don’t ever want to go back to the way it used to be / It’s like I’m living as the way I always wanted to see me.” It’s all of the happiest moments of The Chronicles of Marnia in one high velocity dose. Take a listen below (via Spin).
The 2013 edition of Adult Swim’s Singles Program has already featured new tracks from Lightening Bolt, Dan Deacon, El-P and Killer Mike, METZ, Madlib and Freddie Gibbs, Mac DeMarco, Autre Ne Veut, and Kitty.
