Reliably informed

The gorgeous misty chords in this track by Komparrison grab your attention straight away, and set it apart from your average indie pop song.

The storytelling is engaging, the vocals rich, smoky and jaded, and the context of its ‘dance away your troubles’ message gives it an edge: “Our favourite past-time is corrupting our lungs”, they exclaim, and a year ago a line like this would have been no more than a passing metaphor; it now juts out of the song with increasing poignancy, and the lines before it become deeply moving: “We’re the troubled youth that the adults frown upon / Just misunderstood and trying to have some fun”.

The song’s tingly beginning promises a lot, although I found myself clawing for a bigger, angrier chorus.

Released: 29.01.21
