Don’t let the industrial, glitch production of this single’s a-side fool your – this really is the same Bright Eyes who penned stripped-down classics like “First Day of My Life.” Diehard fans of Bright Eyes aka Connor Oberst will know that he’s long experimented with different styles throughout his different projects. The Nebraska songwriter is something of a genre chameleon and we get to see some of the first hints of that with Bright Eyes’ Singles Club contribution. The long-winded “I Will Be Grateful For This Day. I Will Be Grateful for Each Day To Come” features drums programmed by Cursive and The Faint’s Mike Mogis, giving Oberst the foundation for this surprisingly aggressive turn. B-side “When The Curious Girl Realizes She Is Under Glass” also appears on Bright Eyes’ Fevers and Mirrors and highlights some of the tenderness that permeated Oberst’s early work.
