can’t calm down is one of those tracks that effortlessly take up the standards of 1980s rock, 1990s indie, and even look back a bit further to a bit of the 1960s pre-Hippie California rock. The vocals laid down here are beautiful and pull double duty in both establishing the song’s narrative and adding a further bit of complexity to an already-heady instrumentation. I personally dig the increasing chaos that is brought into can’t calm down beginning at around the 2:20 mark. Here, the guitars whip the song up into a tempestuous storm of guitars and drums, with a resolution nearly as quick as it came upon fans.
