Sometimes I randomly stumble upon songs and forget about them until years later. Unfortunately, this is what happened with “Tie the Rope” by The Format. I use the word unfortunately because I wish I had gotten into this band before they decided to break up. Of course, I love Fun. as well, but I wish I had the proper chance and time to appreciate The Format. Their songs are extremely catchy, smart, and just fun. The band is able to string a bunch of words together, play some instruments, and make it appear to be easy as well as skilled. The Format’s songs are effortless and graceful, and remind people why music is even popular in the first place.
