Light and airy indie pop is what first comes to mind as the delicate vocals of Total Brutal create an enjoyable soundscape. The track remains dancey throughout but the vocal is what makes it. In a strange way it reminds a little of Geowulf, a simple formula and song structure but a really nice catchy song. The harmonies in the chorus just add to the charm and the lyrical content is interesting enough to make you pay attention as the singer exclaims “I had a feeling I was wrong, now I see it and I cannot turn it off”. As the melody changes and she expresses “Should I sit around and waste my time hoping that the world aligns” we see what is rare these days, actual poetry that fits the song and not just trying to jam syllables in or nonsense words that fit a melody. Great song, looking forward to hearing more!
