Reliably informed

We’re flung into the charming world of Christina In Rocket Shoes in medias res, with a chopped up chorus giving way to a wonderfully kaleidoscopic maze of a song, held down by a powerful, thunderous drumming that provides a perfect foundation for the frantic left turns the song provides.

I love the way in which the arrangement (which favours more acoustic instrumentation) carries a lot of brevity and force without relying too heavily on abrasion. It’s perfectly befitting of the confident and assured vocal delivery, supported by graceful vocals that glide so elegantly over the rich soundscape below. All in all, it’s one hell of a fun ride from Cows Lying Down.
