‘Backup Guy’ from Corduroy. is a Vibrant Reflection on Love Lost

Using Lyrical Dissonance, ‘Backup Guy’ Puts an Upbeat and Catchy Spin on Past Relationship Woes

Corduroy. releases ‘Backup Guy’ today. The vibrant and pensive single is the second of four tracks from their third EP, Half-Time Oranges, which is releasing on the 9th of December. Reflecting on the pitfalls of a troubled relationship, ‘Backup Guy’ encapsulates the difficulty of letting go of someone once an integral part of your life. The lyrical content has no malice in it, instead looking back on the difficulties of removing yourself from a situation where you are giving it everything, and not getting anything back. The song uses lyrical dissonance to put a very upbeat, cheerful spin on relationship woes.
