Art pop

Under The Stairs Freakwood

The chugging rythm guitar really reminds me of 'dadoodoodoo' by The Police..Very well produced-I think the drum felt too loud when i first heard it,but i'm kinda used to it now..
This is a strange mix of arty verse and ultra- poppy chorus..The sudden shift to the chorus was a great suprise when it first came in altho i guessed the minor chord change at the end of it before it actually arrived (dunno if thats a good or bad thing)..The mid 8 (the first part) was great when it came in-a really cool suprise..

I think i admire the creative-spirit and ambition here with its strange chord changes/dramatic rythm and mood shifts more than i actually love it as a song..

Alot of great guitaring,intelligent arranging,excellent vocals-but its not quite doing it for me still...
I think the chorus (altho good) is kinda too poppy-and would prob start annoying me abit after a few plays.Tho i know thats just me-as i can hear its obviously ridiculousy catchy n has commercial potential a-plenty..
