Little late to the party but on first listen this is my favourite. Very reminiscent of UF JT era. Great single potential.

Infectious beyond belief, so catchy and upbeat. It should be a lot of fun live too. I like Edge's backup vocals a lot, they have a War-era feeling to them a la Sunday Bloody Sunday.

This is such a good song. You guys ever heard of a band called Bad Suns? Instantly reminded me of them. California indie pop/rock. The post-chorus breakdown is soooo good.

Possible meanings include in-store deals, major sociopolitical warnings and slang for a woman's menstrual cycle.

I've seen "red letter day" (as in, I am noting my scheduled cycle start date in red on my calendar), but never "red flag day" for that.
