“ …a volcano can destroy the town – but so can all of this! you’re so worried about yourselves that you’re turning against each other. you’re so frightened about the future that you’re ruining now. look at the sun! it’s still shining! look at the kelp! it’s still… kelping! and look at us. we still have each other. ”
‘Sign Of The Times’ sounds more like something straight out of the 1970’s, or, rather, exactly like somebody trying to replicate the tastes of a past generation. The tune blends a top 40-ready version of psychedelic-leaning rock with high notes better suited for an R&B slow jam as Styles croons about the end of the world. 'Sign’ is one of the few songs where a written description cannot do justice—you have to hear it to get it.
The song may not be what some One Direction fans had in mind (many probably already considered a handful of 1D tunes to be rock in the first place), but it works better than it should, and perhaps more importantly, it stands out. It is rare when a chart-topping artist takes a risk and tries something that nobody else currently on the pop landscape is doing, and hopefully, Styles’ attempt to bring rock back to the masses in his own way pays off.

“i could recognize him by touch alone, by smell; i would know him blind, by the way his breaths came and his feet struck the earth. i would know him in death, at the end of the world.”–madeline miller, the song of achilles
