That picture seems very fitting for a review of this track, because Micky looks pretty and also kind of crazy. That's the look I give people after I do 7 shots and they ask me if I'm okay. My demure smile says "yes bitch. I could do your taxes right now" but my eyes say "I'm in a blackout, leave a message." And if I am interpreting correctly, that's pretty much what this song is about. Aka trying to trick people into thinking you have your shit together when in reality you woke up with your hand in a bowl of salsa. Take for example, the following lyrics, "And I never want you to see / all my razor teeth / And I never want you to know / The monster inside of me" Spoiler alert: this pretty much never works. Boys can smell crazy FYI. I do want to point out some of the mechanics that make this song amazing. 1. the #slowbuild. Songs feel a lot more rewarding when one is present. Chris Brown's "X." LCD Soundsystem "Dance Yourself Clean." Fucking Bohemian Rhapsody.  The slow build is very under-appreciated in music. 2. Micky has a beautiful expressive voice. 3. some fucked up lyrics. "Wild Things" is bringing the Tim Burton vibes, and we're digging. More plz!!
