This howling track from Awolnation totally blows me away and the close encounters themed video drives it home. Great melodic chords progression carried by a buzzed out wall of sound and distorted vocal treatment.
I find that a lot of our 20 something youth these days are very sad and songs like this are very reflective of the current trends in emotional appeal. When the vocal rises to sing “blame it on my A.D.D baby” one can almost sense the deep woe of the internet generation. Too much unneeded information.
Their album Megalithic Symphony is out now. Owolnation is currently on a Fall tour this September / October with Imagine Dragons and Zeale.
