Fold Your Hands Child

  • Frontman Gabe Saporta told MTV News about this heartfelt and melancholy number: "To me, it's almost like a continuation of a song from our first record, called 'The Kids Are All F---ed Up,' which is kind of indie, soft, a heartfelt song that's kind of f---ed up. It's about being in love but being f---ed up. Not perfect. The 'oooh-ooohs' are influenced by the Arcade Fire... That added such a big thing to the song. We were struggling with that song forever. We had space to go over and over and over it, and then when you're playing it, it sort of takes on a life of its own, and it speaks to you."
