On “David”, Daniel Álvarez de Toledo and Jordan Dunn-Pilz have crafted a dreamy ode to shared trauma and communal recovery, with searching guitars and an occasional banjo flourish that’s supported by slow, shuffling drums. “‘David’ was written for my younger brother,” Dunn-Pilz said in a statement. “As siblings we share a lot of the same emotional baggage, but we process things differently as individuals. The song came out of a desire for healing in spite of those differences.”
As for the alternate version of “Sunday Funday”, it’s brighter than the original, with newly-layered vocals floating over the top of a banjo backbone. This rendition is slightly shorter, offering a more compact take on the themes of substance abuse and helplessness.
