Haunted Pop


Music, RemixEricComment

Well these are three names I'm definitely excited to see together. Thoreau has been developing his own brand of guitar laden future bass that fits perfectly underneath Ember Island's incredibly juicy cover of Radiohead's classic "Creep." The beginning of this remix is hauntingly beautiful and melodic eventually building toward a rawkus breakdown of bright melodies and a sporadic dubby wobble. The real bliss in this remix however I think is the way Harry aka Thoreau has layered the breakdowns. The second verse is mysterious and longing with a hidden intensity to it eventually taking us to a thoroughly exciting finale full of fantastic electric guitar. With Halloween right around the corner you couldn't ask for a better tune to get us in the mood. You can download this for free right here.

Just in time for Halloween, new kids on the block Oyster Kids have delivered to us a deliciously "Creepy" new tune that is equal parts mellowed out synth pop with a hint of something sinister underneath. I'm a big fan of the harmonies, the synth soundscape and snappy snare throughout this one. "Creepy" is setting the bar pretty high for the newcomers and I can't wait to see what they have next up their sleeve. Already making waves on Hype Machine at #8 as I'm writing this, today they've also released a new music video to accompany this breakout single. Talk about creepy, the two guy and girl leads are precariously smiling throughout reminiscent of Chuckie Dolls, accompanied by mysterious bandage wrapped owners. The video certainly matches the name of the song, so go check out the music video here.
