‘Tessellate’ would be perfect for the heavyhanded bit at the end of a Scrubs episode where a child dies in surgery and Zach Braff blames it on himself. And that’s just about the most interesting thing about it. Everything about ‘Tessellate’, from the nasally vocals to the Killers-esque synths accompanying the verses, sounds like the life’s been focus-grouped right out of it. Worse still, the lyrics bang on about how broken hearts can tessellate, but they don’t even make it clear whether they tessellate in a two-dimensional Euclidean plane or another n-dimensional space. Disappointing.
