Get Me Free #7: weird. - Summerbliss

Article by KevW


'Summerbliss' is one of those songs which pretty much manages to describe itself using just one word - especially if you add the artwork too. weird. are from Rome and, as the title suggests, 'Summerbliss' is soothing, relaxing and perfect for this time of year. It's also very good, which, really, is the main thing. The whole name might scream "dreampop!" at you, and that tag definitely fits, but it crosses into other realms too.

Both vocally and atmospherically, this is a song that recalls the early work of The Verve before they went a bit too laddish and while they weren't trying to be too anthemic. The spangly guitar intro lights up the song, and then the soft beat carries it as vocals drift by in the background. It picks up as it goes along, but never too much; it continuously focuses on the job in hand and achieves its goals. And that cover it a great shot.
