Dawes lead singer/songwriter Taylor Goldsmith is in an anxious mood on the band's seventh album, 2020's lyrically incisive Good Luck with Whatever. On the wry, Bowie-esque title track, he paints a picture of suburban dread, singing "There's a man with a chainsaw/Standing out in my yard/He says he's just trimming trees/But he's clearly trying too hard. " And what of that conspicuous Chevy Suburban with the government plates? While it's unclear if Goldsmith has done anything to warrant his fear, he's not taking any chances and plans his getaway as the car's engine idles ominously outside.
