The Jezabels – The End
Produced by Dan Grech-Marguerat (Lana Del Rey, Keane, The Kooks), “The End” is a polished, expansive indie pop jam sure to please fans. But for all its joyfulness, lyrically “The End” is rather heavy, with lead singer Hayley Mary explaining its meaning below: “The End” is a song about a time that I think we all reach at some point in our lives, where you are not sure you can go on, not sure that you have anything left to give. When you’re on your knees asking yourself, ‘Is this the end?’
