Pitchfork writes of this song: "Syd has grown masterful at describing the nuances of love and courtship.... Sometimes that’s meant avoiding singing about the big dramatic moments in the pursuit of intimacy and, instead, focusing on the smaller and sillier ones" -- https://bit.ly/2tMijl5 Check out the video: https://youtu.be/-xyDg9Tco5s
