The new song holds true to Halcyon's break-up theme, but shows a slightly less electronic side than the usual, electro-pop heavy oeuvre we're used to hearing from Goulding. A simple piano, subtle drum, and swelling synths complement Goulding's light, airy vocals. It's a dark track that's far removed from the uplifting dance sound "Burn" lends to Halcyon Days. But that's all part of a break up though, right? There's a time to wallow in the heaviness, and there's a time to pick up the pieces and celebrate. This track lies somewhere in the middle.
