I was super happy to hear that this band has a new release coming up in June and took the opportunity to purchase this song which was out early. Most of the reviews you read out there about Graveyard Club reference comparisons to The Cure, New Order and the like…and I really have no complaint with that as there is a definite connection. For me through, their music does a great job of melding the influences of bands such as that with their own brand of energy and music composition.
The way the drums lead off this song draws you right in and the synth gives a positive lift of underlying energy. You have a sense of running somewhere and then the vocal comes in to tell a story that I am honestly still trying to figure out…which just makes it more fascinating to me:) It is one of those songs that likely has a very different meaning to various listeners. And high-five for the brassy guitars that ring out several times along the way…very dramatic! My only complaint is that the vocal mastering is a little muddy but there is always the chance that this was intentional as it does add a layer of texture.
Fun song to listen to and well done – it definitely gets my recommendation.
