After getting some breathing room in the flowing and moody pre-chorus, “By the Books” becomes a heart-pumping indie rock dance track in the vein of Two Door Cinema club. All in all, “By the Books” is a fresh, versatile, and fun showcase from Venus Demilo that gives off nothing but good signs for this band’s future.
