I wasn’t too sure what to expect from The False Poets. The intro features haunting and ominous sounds, then the drums jump in the mix alongside heavy lead guitar, feeling like it could go in any direction.

At times it’s a very stripped back track, with not a lot of depth, but less can be more, and this does make the instruments present pop that little bit more. The vocal performance layered within is soft on the ears and is what made the track for me. That said, the song’s structure is a bit pre-emptive, not reaching the climax it was building up to and in turn making the main hook feel weaker than it should’ve been.
