I Woke Up Like This: Foxing – “Rory”

Almost missed these guys because I had no idea they were on tour. Was fortunate enough to have a friend remind me and this song has been stuck in my head all weekend. It has to be one of the most devastating sad songs ever written. Pitchfork, who hates more music than I do, tried to shit on this song, but then wrote the most accurate description about it, “As ‘Rory’ lurches towards its devastating chorus, Murphy drops the metaphors for a nuclear desperation… It’s probably about a breakup or, more likely, unrequited love, but like the best songs of this stripe, it feels like the goddamn apocalypse.”
