"Can't bring myself to dive into an ocean full of change," George Ezra sings, seconds into opener 'Pretty Shining People'. It's a lot less sickly sweet than the R.E.M. track it's (almost) named after, pondering a life that's changing at a rapid pace, bogged down by thinking and overthinking. By the time the chorus skips into life though, it becomes an ode to togetherness and sharing the emotional load.
