Brisbane family-act Bare Beets offer up a bass-heavy, organic yet colourful arrangement and catchy songwriting as their brand new single I Bet hits the scene.
Lyrically familiar yet also intriguing, the release drives with a quirky melody that manages to feel new but also satisfying in its sudden rising inflection.
Following this, things get heavy – stylish, blues-rock-kissed, confident. The whole progression of the song holds close to this mildly familiar yet fresh set-up – it’s not ground-breaking on paper, but it has more than enough character and intention to give off a welcomed air of identity, and this effect increases throughout.
The second time that hook kicks in it really works its magic. Cascading guitars, distortion and the crash of live drums, vocal weight, addictive melodic movement. The entire release comes in at under the three minute mark, yet it feels much more epic than this short lifespan tends to imply.
Swiftly progressing from good to great, I Bet proves itself to ultimately be one of the most original and engaging alternative tracks this side of the year. I look forward to hearing more from Bare Beets.
