In the contemplative new single “These Old Jeans” by Seattle-based band La Need Machine, we are given a rich tapestry of introspection set to melody. As a listener, I was instantly impressed by the lyrics that artfully contrast the timeless nature of old jeans with the changing character of personal wisdom.

The song is a wonderful example of the theme of growth that is achieved through the recognition of previous misjudgments, which in turn results in a more profound and meaningful connection with others. It is a soul-moving path to peace, love, and understanding, wrapped in a rhythm that soothes and uplifts. “These Old Jeans” is a deep reflection on the path of life, which is the trademark of the band’s original synthesis of sincerity and art.
