I’ve been quite a fan of these guys for a while now. I’ve only really just gotten around to listening to this tune properly and why did I ever have my doubts about it being a great song?
The track is cleverly written. Must check out the Genius annotations here.
This is so far my favourite track of 2016.
So the first time I listened to this, I didn’t know what I thought of it sonically. The second time I listened to it which was the day after Flume released it, I liked 2 things about it. One was the structure because there’s like this weird paradox happening where it’s so percussively complicated (compared to his older stuff) but yet the song is melodic simple. I can’t put my finger on the second thing – I’m still trying to figure that one out. But anyway, today I finally bought the single of iTunes cause for some reason, I was just dying to listen to it. And now I fucking love it. And I actually can’t figure out what he’s done to those chords whether they are arpeggiated or ducked, or perhaps both? Someone tell me…
Wes Pentz, you’ve done it again. Heart eye emoji for days.
Also, I frikken love this one by Shawn Mendes. Really dig the melody. Also you know what I’ve noticed with a lot of pop music? They don’t use hi hats very often.
