Song commission to Mt. Washington by Local Natives! I have to say that I’m having a BLAST with these song commissions! I’m gaining a ton of new music to listen to and love and the end result of the illustrations are making me super happy!
Mt. Washington - Local Natives Victoria-Related Analysis
When I first listened to the song, I immediately linked the “I don’t have to see you right now” to other people thinking about Kate after her suicide attempt failed.
People like Victoria, who would now feel a lot of guilt for pushing Kate to that decision, or for not having been able to help her properly, like Max, trying to find a way to compensate for it.
“We could wash the dirt off our hands now.”
Especially someone like Victoria who only would want to see Kate after her suicide attempt failed, and be there for her, but is too conflicted to admit those feelings to herself, and is trying to resist the urge to actually go and see/contact her, not least since she knows what she has done to Kate. And what could she do anyway, to make up for something like that?
She knows it’s not the right time. She knows Kate wouldn’t want to see her anyway. She is too stubbornly ‘proud’ to accept the fact that she actually cares about Kate and that she is deeply sorry for what she did. She knows there is no way to properly say sorry for what she did anyway.
I can totally picture Victoria sitting in her dorm room alone, staring at the ceiling and telling herself "No, I don’t have to see you right now” again and again.
“I don’t have to see you right now.”
The horrible feeling of guilt does not go away, it’s still “living underground”, and she just can’t stop crying.
“Digging like you can bury something that cannot die.”
The royal imagery in the last line totally fits Victoria’s personality, and it’s like she was ironically telling herself, “See what you did there, Victoria? You can be soo damn proud of yourself. Everyone should know what a miserable person Victoria Chase is.”
“Praise the summer goddess. You can tell a whole empire."
