Song Review: Kings of Leon Want You To “Find Me”

King of Leon’s album Walls has to be one of their most confident albums. While many artists can spend their whole careers looking and transforming their sound, Kings of Leon know what they have. Their rock revels in in the cycle of “lost and found” we can feel in relationships, even the one we have with ourselves. One minute, we feel clear in our love, like life has given us the time and space that we have always wanted to feel like our best selves. Yet, “Find Me” is all about the troubled periods in a relationship where we ask our loved ones to find our best selves for us because we do not know where to look anymore. 

Find Me

I have to be honest: I love Caleb Followill’s voice. It just pours into music like scotch hitting a crystal glass. He manages to make bitter sound so sweet is something that even Chocolate, the candy, cannot do. Thus, “Find Me” feels lyrics and music one’s heart would play at seeing someone “see” them. Often, in relationships, we are shocked our partner likes us. We wonder what they see in us, or how the manage to find the light in us, even when we place ourselves in the “shadows” of life. Thus, do not underestimate the hope of “Find Me”. Yes, it has blazing guitar and  bass arrangements, to which if someone told me Fire, the element, wrote the composition, I would believe it. Yet, it also has a heartfelt theme about how rescued we can feel when someone, or ourself, goes through the darkness we have placed ourself in to say, “You’re worth saving”. Hence, the video is all about letting go of the fodder and newsflashes that could make even our minds feel disappeared so that, in exchange, we never find our hearts. Therefore, go find your heart because there you will “Find Me” or rather yourself.
