"Everything's Bigger" - Speedy Ortiz [SoundCloud Audio]

Patrick Lyons

by Patrick Lyons

Published December 11, 2013

As a follow-up to this year's Major Arcana, one of the best indie rock debuts of 2013, Speedy Ortiz have announced an EP entitled Real Hair. It's set to drop on February 11th, and the band have shared single "Everything's Bigger" two months ahead of the release date. Listen above.

Despite the fact that the song title brings to mind the old saying, "everything's bigger in Texas," Vermont is actually the only state mentioned by name in its lyrics. Musically, "Everything's Bigger" doesn't stray too far from the '90s indie rock vibe that defined Major Arcana, with Dinosaur Jr.-esque, monstrously fuzzy riffs. Frontwoman Sadie Dupuis' marble-mouthed delivery of the song's tongue-in-cheek lyrics is a perfect facsimile of any number of the sarcastic slackers that rose to prominence in a time when the phrase "indie rock" was more associated with D.I.Y. ethics than with bands that cover Sheryl Crow.
