This is particularly prevalent in the book materials of the album « The Benefits of Being Alone » and its respective covers. If the first track is a celebration of freedom, « The Reprise » is a silent lament of loneliness. The texts do not change, but the arrangement brings a completely different rotation the second time. The song « The Benefits of Being Alone » has much in common with the statler Brothers song « Counting Flowers on the Wall ». With a jazz piano, horns and a joyful melody, the song lists the supposed benefits of a single life, such as « Booking flights as places I`ve always wanted to go ». » However, the song quickly shows his hand, with lyrics like « It might take six days to find my body away, but think of all the space I get to browse » because the illusion is broken that the singer is happy to be isolated. The resumption of the track goes even further to show how hateful it is for the singer to be alone, because although the texts are unchanged, they are supported only by a slow and downcast piano. The effect of these soothed tracks is incredibly moving and perfectly conveys the singers fighting for optimism in a cry for help. Album: Bravado Release Date: February 21, 2020 Genre: Folk/Pop « The Return (Love Comes Back) » is a turning point for the album. There is a swelling of hope to the choruses that are built below. It`s a triumphant reminder of the resilience of life after some of the most disappointing tracks on the record. The repetition of the song`s title is a comforting memory, a mantra that surpasses any struggle with mortality or loneliness.
Although this is far from the last track, this lasting memory feels like the cousins are giving a gift to anyone who seeks the answer themselves.
