“Death in the Afternoon” is extremely well paced from start to finish. The song takes its listeners on a journey of self reflection and the inconveniences of disrupting thoughts, and it’s perfectly slow in the sense that it captures what’s incredible about chill vibes. The chorus is what stands out the most, and rightfully so with it’s incredible use of implementing vocals for instrumentals, really cementing the band’s personal touch. Finishing off with an electric guitar feature, “Death in the Afternoon” is a superb track that encourages relaxation and the benefits of winding down.
