Walking through a college campus in the cold is something everyone must do before they die– and I say that with complete sincerity. The cold wind stings at your skin and clears your nostrils, attacking the multiple layers of clothing that have attached their woolen exoskeletons to your body, acting as biological refreshment. Walking to class, gazing at the trees and collegiate architecture is something that mankind can only experience at a certain time in its life– the greek columns, the flying buttresses of the library, the bells, the intricate brick– they all encourage winter’s cold and make winter’s cold encouraging. “Done to My Love,” by Boise noisemakers, Gayze, is a psychedelic slow burner that will perfectly soundtrack an icy commute to class. While the trudging guitars, lo-fi production, and sloppy melody will warm your insides, the frigid lyrics and reverberated vocals will conspire with the winter, eliminating the quick warmth of the song’s instrumentation. “Done to My Love” is a stylistic track that serves as a love song, a stoner jam, and a rock n’ roll tune. Yet, despite the song’s versatility, it will never feel as perfect as it does when walking through a chilly campus– at least to me.
