Alligator Vibes

Of Monsters and Men‘s new single Alligator is quickly becoming a summer anthem for me. I appreciate that they’ve traded their folk music sensibilities for a more electric, rock sound, and I love the way the hazy lyrics evoke more of a feeling then attempt to tell a clear cut story.

I see colour raining down
Feral feeling, swaying sound
But I don’t know what you want
I am open and I am restless
Help me feel it out, let it all come out

Wake me up
I’m fever dreaming
And now I lose control
I’m fever dreaming
Shake it out
It’s just what I’m feeling
And now I take control
I’m fever dreaming (I’m fever dreaming)

Oh so quiet when they laid me in the stream
And the starlit sky grew before my eyes
Twenty-two women stood by the banks and cried
Oh, I

Wake me up
I’m fever dreaming
And now I lose control
I’m fever dreaming
Shake it out
It’s just the way I’m feeling
And now I take control
I’m fever dreaming (I’m fever dreaming)
I must be fever dreaming (I’m fever dreaming)
