Song Review: Bright Eyes’ “Shell Games”


“Shell Games” is the new single off Bright Eyes’ new upcoming album titled The People’s Keys. The song starts with Conor Oberst singing the metaphor-filled lyrics with the company of a piano. What seems to be a slow paced melancholic song is broken down by an explosion of synth, piano and drums that play in unison to create a great steady beat. With an almost electro-rock feel to it, “Shell Games” is a mesh of great lyrics and an interesting composition. Check out the song over at Pitchfork, and the new album cover above!
