Leather and Wood

Album: Fading Frontier (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • In response to a comment by The New York Observer that this track demonstrates a sense of humor, Deerhunter frontman Braford Cox replied: "My assessment of that song is that it's sort of dystopian, maybe a bit sarcastic and artificially hopeful. Not sarcastic in a humorous way, but like if you were trying very hard to believe these positive affirmations in the face of violence, or a giant void that smells like a new car. It's not that I'm trying to be funny."
