When I was 22, I told a 27-year-old I'd just met that "27 or 28 is the age when you've got everything figured out." Oh, to be that young, dumb, and naïve again, before the low-key bimonthly quarter-life crises set in -- a problem that Grimes and Bleachers explore on their new song together.
"Entropy" finds the two artists, a.k.a. Claire Boucher and Jack Antonoff, contemplating their past and present selves and passions lost and found over some gentle acoustic backing.
The track is a far cry from either Grimes' usual demonic synthscapes or Bleachers' long-lost mixtape of '80s nostalgia -- it's more similar to Rihanna, Kanye West, and Paul McCartney's "FourFiveSeconds" than anything else, both sonically and thematically.
Listen for "Entropy" during tonight's episode of "Girls" on HBO. (Jack is dating show creator and star Lena Dunham, FYI.) Until then, you can find me huddled in that corner of the room over there thinking about my liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiife.
