On "Weaker One," Waterstrider (the moniker of Nate Salman) elevates the hyper-melodic atmospheric rock honed on his debut LP Nowhere Now to majestic new heights. Both jauntier and sleeker than anything he's given to us so far, "Weaker One" twists a tale of poisoned, and lost, love around a magnetic chorus and shimmering synths, blurring the line between regret and lustful yearning until we've lost sight of where love ends and loss begins.


Somewhere inside,
rest the heart like broken bones
Caution: bring them
audible and pleasant tones

Such a wonder, wasted
with a broken touch
Chemical reset
the language of my lust

I’m the weaker one
the weaker one
Talk to me of love,
become undone

Bleeding colors
bent, I won your pretty eyes
Caught in mist,
I fell in bliss inside your mind

we are opening and closing doors
Now I wonder
whether I ever found yours

I’m the weaker one
the weaker one
Talk to me of love,
become undone
