Balances a carefree sense of character with considerate awareness of context. It sounds great because you know it well & because you hardly know it at all.
A winning formula, successfully fusing the grit & realness of rock with a fairly polished level of production that allows the song to shine brightly.
The song opens with questioning lyrics, later on offering more of a story telling element – presenting potential solutions or answers to those queries.
The weight & hit of heavy music connects & satisfies, but the melody has an alternative sense of emotion. It contrasts beautifully with the screamo element.
The progression of the chords, the distortion, the distance – you can feel the emotion of the piece from the overall energy of it.
Watch Me goes hard with a spacious rhythm & flow that fuses the quickness of clever hip-hop & the mellow movement of reggae. Refreshingly organic.
The ambiance is eclectic & interesting, the pace & brightness of the track’s rhythm drives its way into your consciousness from the first few moments.
Far from a simple songwriting session where band members fill in the space around the lyrics, Barbott work as one – crafting music with passion & intent.
