Stolen from Emmanuel's Facebook for its dramatic qualities,
and good composition.

Emmanuel Ethier, of Coeur de Pirate, is a talented multi-instrumentalist and (get this) all around nice guy to boot. When he's not traipsing around foreign lands playing with Beatrice & co, snapping photos, and running into Alicia Keys, he's honing and perfecting this sort of stuff along with a couple of other folks under the name PASSWORDS. It's a great song, and there are strong progressive elements here (not unlike Mew), along with steel drums lifted from calypso and a rolling sea-shanty rhythm, all culminating in a delightful finale with guitar theatrics reminiscent of Built to Spill.
