Is it possible for a song to be beautifully lazy? If the lethargic elements in question add to the song’s overall tone, then I’d say yes. Case in point, NYC duo Washer’s couch-locked anthem, “Rot”. The vocals are less-than-eager. The slide guitar slinks around, as if to say, “eh.” When the song explodes, it does so out of idle frustration. “Rot” is about the realization that your life is slipping away, but knowing you lack the motivation to do anything about it. “All I wanna do is rot.” Enjoy.
