A propulsive driving track, ‘In Your Head’ opens with gritty vocals and a simplistic drum beat before a high octane distorted riff kicks off the tracks building pressing energy. Combining the feelgood factor of abundant bold refrains and dynamic percussion we are given the continuously pressing feeling of a feelgood track with an underlying tenacious factor. While injections of electronic tones and effects add a further colourful edge giving for a complexly layered track conveying an angst driven approach to the lyrics and overall idea of the single.
A prominent dark bass-line carries the track throughout its duration, pushing it further towards the grittier end of the indie spectrum. Dropping to a bright synth refrain, striking vocals build above a rolling drum rhythm. Vivid sparkling melodies lead us into the tracks final minute where a slowed down rewind and distorted layered vocals give for one final run through of the tracks chorus before ending abruptly.
Overall ‘In Your Head’ is a high energy power trip from beginning to end, with a darker edge it will have you lost in its intertwining layers of compelling melodies, dynamic percussion and bold vocals. It leaves us excited for future material from High Tyde.
