"They're Coming for Me" is a dark, bluesy, folk rock song. Musically it's fairly mainstream, but there's something about La Botz's voice that is undeniably compelling. It's a tired trope to say you can hear someone's life in their voice, but La Botz's voice carries a weariness that shows his life, but he also has a sense of optimism. It's the dichotomy of folk/rock/Americana mixed with his punk edged voice that gives "They're Coming for Me" such a compelling feel.
