INHEAVEN - Stupid Things

Somewhere in there is a split and heartbreak, but the tentative romanticism makes ‘Stupid Things’ sweet as candy floss.

Somewhere in there is a split and heartbreak, but the tentative romanticism makes ‘Stupid Things’ sweet as candy floss.

Ah, young love. An experience filled with joy, excitement, and crushing, heart-palpitating insecurity. What a wonderful, awful thing.

INHEAVEN’s ‘Stupid Things’ is a tribute to this hideous beast. It charges out of the gate with a ‘Born To Run’ riff, then coasts into something dreamy and cinematic. James Taylor and Chloe Little’s vocals twine around each other, conjuring images that would be right at home in a feelgood teen movie. Here is a shy sixteen year old, hidden behind a too-long fringe and sneaking glances at a pipedream crush. Here is the same pair making eye-contact across the room at a school dance. Here they are holding hands. Somewhere in there is a split and heartbreak, but the tentative romanticism makes ‘Stupid Things’ sweet as candy floss. Liam Konemann
