Balance And Composure Release Video For “Tiny Raindrop”

Balance and Composure’s sophomore release, The Things We Think We’re Missing, is a fantastic album.

There’s something undeniable about the way Dan “Soupy” Campbell, vocalist of The Wonder Years, sings the line “I’m sorry I don’t laugh at the right times” on the band’s fourth full-length, The Greatest Generation.
