The magic of Lorde, Melodrama and the show rests with feeling: the tingling rush of new love, the dull, prolonged sting of loneliness, the fear that “someday” might actually be today and the restlessness in trying to make sense of them all.

This coming Saturday, Tigers Jaw are bringing their talents to El Club in Detroit in support of spin, and the Daily had the opportunity to speak with keyboardist/vocalist Brianna Collins (opposite Ben Walsh on guitar and vocals) about the new record and headlining tour.
And unlike The Strokes, whose first album’s perfection would doom the rest of their discography, Phoenix have grown and changed throughout their career. But I’ll always be longing for another masterpiece, and I don’t think that’s an unfair standard to hold them to.
