Sleepclub - 'Cut You'
Cut you is the debut single from Australian dream-pop outfit Sleepclub; the music video uploaded on 14th December has a charming DIY feel to it, utilizing extreme closeups to accentuate strong emotive quality of the accompanying music.
'Cut you' is a textbook example of dream-pop; wistfully lingering vocal notes elongate each verse deepening sentiment and amplifying the impact of each chord change. As repeated melodic sequences and lyrical hook's expand a sense of deep encompassing rumination, we're led on-wards by the somber evenly paced bass-line which underpins the track.
With a slightly mathy drumfeel spacing out sparse snare-strikes around some Bossa Nova style accentuated tom accents; kit-wise this is a rhythmically intriguing track which flirts with notions art rock and the sound of groups like Warpaint.
