All the Things She Said – Bronnie (originally by t.A.T.u.)

All the Things She Said – Bronnie (originally by t.A.T.u.)

Opening with stuttering synths, the song quickly introduces the first chorus with vocals and guitars. The verse takes it a little slower before re-adding the guitar and synths on the chorus. The bridge features an instrumentation that gives the synths and guitars a moment to shine. The song ends with one last chorus that slowly drowns out.

Lyrically the song basically describes the feeling of someone words echoing trough your head.

What I like about this song is the throwback it gives to the early 2000s when the original song was around, furthermore I like the way Bronnie her vocals fit with this song.      

Rancho Cucamonga- Wilmette

Rancho Cucamonga- Wilmette

Swooping in with loud guitars and pounding drums. The song keeps up its energy on the first verse, alternating between clean and grunting vocals. On the chorus the band adds more of a stuttering effect alternating between heavy and poppy. The second verse starts with more grunting vocals before the instrumentation gets slower to build trough the bridge. The song ends with one last chorus.

Lyrically the song seems to shine a light on speaking up and a feeling of being stuck in one’s mind.

What I like about this song is how fast paced it is and energetic it is, it reminds me a lot of easycore and especially band such as “four year strong”  

The Coming Years- All Doomed

The Coming Years- All Doomed

Kicking right of with heavy riffs and banging drums, the first verse adds grunting vocals and fast paced instrumentals. On the chorus the band gets slower and introduces more riffing guitars and clean vocals before kicking it back up with grunting vocals and heavy instrumentals. On the bridge the band takes it even slower before ending with one last push.

Lyrically seems to describe the viewpoint of a person that slowly becomes more and more overwhelmed with the world around him, begging for serenity.

What I like about this song is the contrast between the soft and loud parts as well as how much of a moshing song this is.

Tunnel Vision- Movements

Tunnel Vision- Movements

Slowly dripping in with dreamy guitars and pounding drums. The band takes it a little slower with the first verse, slowly building towards the emotional energy of the chorus. The instrumentation takes it slower again on the second verse but quickly drips back to the energy of the chorus. The bridge takes the middle ground between the dreamy verses and energetic chorus. The song ends with one last chorus.

Lyrically the song describes a feel of lost but also seems to draw comparisons with being in a tunnel or in trenches  

What I like about this song is the alternating between loud and soft, as well as the emotional energy behind the vocals.  

Wild Things-Seaway

Wild Things-Seaway

Starting this off with fuzzy guitars. The song slowly brings in soft vocals and gets into poppy chorus. On the second verse a synth is added as well as a combination of electric and acoustic guitar. The bridge adds more to the dreamy vibe of the song introducing vocal effects and slow pounding drums. The song ends with one last chorus.

Lyrically the song seems to be a little bit more morbid than it sounds, describing a man standing on the edge and his fall.   

What I like about this song is the overall dreamy pop vibe. Basically, this song is perfect to sing along on long car rides.
