If the universe still makes sense, somehow, "Freedom" by Amen Dunes will be on most "Best albums of 2018" lists when this year comes to an end. The new single "Believe" is said to be about McMahon's mother and her brush with mortality, which is not the lightest of subjects, but the song sways along in a loose and breezy way. Intimate, beautiful stuff.
"Well, seems to me baby you don’t want to stay
That’s O.K. if that’s true
Life goes on, and this is just a song
But still I do it for you
And I do it for you"
