Fantastic lead guitar riff in the intro. The screaming vocals that kick in at the 30 second mark are totally unnerving in the best possible way. I almost fell out of my chair! Great instrumental breakdown at the 45 second mark too. Recalls the best of late 80's early 90's grunge. Cool low-key guitar solo in the song's mid-section. The vocals in the bridge are probably the least memorable part of what is an otherwise surprisingly catchy song.
I kind of like the song. It's definitely a bit demented, but I'm digging the syncopation and change-ups. I didn't like the video honestly. The camera is just way to shaky. And then I saw the graffiti at the end on public transport, and I was completely turned off by it. Because of that I'm inclined to not share it or support it. Was that you or the band marking up the subway? Why would you put that in a video and be proud about it? Maybe I'm missing something.
Watching the same smile for 5 years was pretty crazy! Awesome to see your face/hair/etc change but that same smile keep on going. Also, this track is great. Nice balance of great playing along with weird sounds. Love it. My only real critique is the production on the piano - again, great playing, but the actual piano sound comes off as a bit of a canned "digital piano sound". I would have loved to have heard a better sampled piano sound or maybe even a real piano being tracked over this. One easy thing you could consider is just adding a tad of really nice, lush reverb on the piano to help give it space and depth. Cheers.
