Downtown Mystic – ‘3-Way Heartbreak’ – more than just a nostalgic listening experience!

One of the things Downtown Mystic notoriously excel at is masking emotional lyrics with upbeat, driving-with-the-windows-rolled-down kind of melodies.

After all, profound moodiness feels rather natural for a culture that grew out of urban plight and the trauma of purposely disenfranchised people.
