We’re all just miniscule specks of matter in an ever-expanding universe. When listening to Zach Bryan’s ‘Twenty So,’ from his surprise EP, Summertime Blues, the world feels even smaller. And time feels even more crushing than it already is. “How close can a man come to God before dyin’ / About as close as you were when you were tryin’,” she struggles to accept his inevitable death and what his faith actually means. In the end, we’re all faced with the closing of the doors on our lives. Bryan’s performance throws a blow right to the heart.
