Palehound’s If You Met Her is a powerful piece of alt rock that builds off the framework of bands like Rilo Kiley and The Breeders. Emotive vocals, fuzzy guitars, and a chunky drum sound make If You Met Her into a tremendously hooky sound. Lyric repetition ensures that the song’s melody will be tattooed deeply into the minds and hearts of listeners. Palehound’s guitar work s top-notch with swirling eddies and sizzling licks that add further complexity to an already heady cut. The breakdown at the three-minute mark provides a second to breathe before Palehound amps back up for a final minute of contemplation.
