Yeah I despised twee for a long time and a lot of it can still be sickening. But I think older bands like Tiger Trap and now Allo Darlin' can find the perfect balance where their lyrics are from the heart, sweet, and maybe nostalgic but it feels genuine instead of some attempt at being cutesy. Kind of hard to explain the distinction though and maybe it's just something I made up.
"Tallulah" is also definitely the most "twee" song on the album too. Most of it is more up-tempo jangle-pop stuff ("The Letter" is another great track but there's not a video of it anywhere).
