The Austin-based band’s latest track was written for a friend who fell in love with a girl who wanted to leave her boyfriend for him, but neither shared their feelings outright. It takes restraint to successfully portray unrequited love, and the Black and White Years nails it. The male/female duet adds a heartbreaking element to the lyrics, while the instrumentation recalls the Human League and OMD. The result: a song that is intimate yet wistful.
