It’s always magic in music when everything just seems to fit. The way the lyrics move through the melody to personify the words; the way the production works to emphasize the dissonance; the way the sound pulsates through your veins, into your bones to resonate in your gut before bursting through your every pore in dance. There aren’t many tracks like that out there in the music sphere, but this one right here is a needle in a haystack.
Miike Snow is already a gem of a band. Their tracks and sound aesthetic consistently impress me. I have proof in my iTunes song counter that I kept it on repeat for a healthy couple of weeks when the song dropped. The video, too, was glorious. Factor in Aussie duo, Flight Facilities infectious electro-pop vision and we’ve got ourselves a brilliant piece of sound. Any more words on the track would ruin the experience for you. This is one track that doesn’t need much to back it up; it’s power speaks for it self. No, it’s power does more than speak; it’s power is felt.
Plug in your headphones, tune in, and begin your Thursday properly. Welcome to the new day.
We’ll all be staring at the same wave.”
Indeed, we will be.
