Like always, Mew finds every opportunity to play in one wicked signature to another whenever they can, and their latest single, Repeaterbeater, is no exception. (Yes it seems they’re very into rhyming nowadays, could be their way of introducing to us their hip hop tendencies while letting us off at the same time)
Listening to this is like trying to cheat time, tripping over the milliseconds of rushed guitars and lingering at the pulsating beats of agressive emotion. And just as I was pondering over the ugly introduction and closing, I realized that the song is meant to be played in a loop, hence the title. Seems the Danish fellows have not completely lost their bearing.
Yup, that’s my epiphany of the week, nothing’s that’s gonna save the world.
