Shimmering and saturated, Better finds Penguin Prison’s piano-driven, neon, dance-pop in fine form with the song’s hopeful refrain designed to lift listeners up. The track sees Glover writing his way out of a dark place towards the light: «This song is my response to the times we find ourselves in», he explains. «The global pandemic, social injustice, climate change; it’s overwhelming. I wanted to write about rising above it all. I want the listener to feel hopeful that we can find a way to get through even if it’s just for the duration of the song».
