“I feel complete but I don’t know yet,” goes the break on “More than Ever,” the second track on Said the Whale’s new album, As Long as Your Eyes Are Wide. It’s a perfect line that sums up the sunny but unflinching self-reflection that accompanies one’s late-20s/ early-30s. Those heavy meditations on what it means to be a grownup and the sensation of catching up with our parents, bosses, authority figures, and realizing that adulthood is nothing like what we imagined as kids.
