When you see this cover art, and read the title of the track, there may be a few sounds/styles that you expect to hear. Menacing? Dark? Downright scary? Well, you'd be wrong my friend. But- I must admit, I expected the same vibes.
Little Cults, has a pretty joyous/upbeat atmosphere. The Singing dynamics are gentle, the production is fun, and the lyrics tell a story that's easy to follow. Many of the rhyme schemes are also memorable:
"I can make you see the light, I can make you feel alive."
"Don't try to fight, I'm the one you need."
The production holds the pieces to making this track, radio friendly. The instrumental melody plays a strong role in working with the vocals, though it has its moment where it shines alone.
Some vocal effects placed on the singing, really add that extra, electro-pop sound, that could make this song a cross-cultural favorite.
NRVS LVRS, also does a fine job of subtly, but evidently creating the song's climax. It feels like it sneaks up on you, and without you thinking twice, you're already within the madness!
