Jimmy Eat World recently churned out a Bleed American-style banger with "Something Loud," and now they've followed it with "Place Your Debts," an atmospheric slow-burner more in the vein of Clarity or the deeper cuts on Futures. Some of Jimmy Eat World's best songs are in this mode, and it's always great to hear them doing more of this kinda stuff, especially when it's as instantly great as "Place Your Debts." Listen and watch the video (shot, directed by, and starring Jimmy Eat World's own Jim Adkins during the band's recent tour) below.
The song was co-written with Clark Baechle (The Faint) and Denver Dalley (Desaparecidos), and Jim says, "The ‘debt’ you rack up is the time you spend avoiding doing the work to know yourself. You buy an ending every time you start something, and the cost is determined by how closely you pay attention to your personal condition."
