Track Review: Hammare – God Is Doing Blow

31BhBFVj2FL._SS500

Artist: Hammare

Song: God Is Doing Blow

Genre: Industrial Rock/Electronic 

 The debut single “God Is Doing Blow” from Swedish duo “Hammare” is an exploration in dissonance, but rather then descending further down the rabbit hole of inaccessibility, the band have every intention to make you move with the song’s danceable quality with it’s groovy rhythm section. The dissonance comes from the synthesizers and unconventional arrangements. The discombobulating machine sounding noise provided by said synthesizers brings a chaotic nature to the track, echoing the genre of “Industrial” music, but this is controlled chaos. It’s never overbearing, and it’s dichotomized with catchiness and sexy swagger. The instrumentation is dirty yet polished, and it compliments the vocals and lyrical content quite well. With lyrical content that seems to be touching on the abandonment of self-sufficiency and the misguided influences of charlatan leaders, it’s clear that the band wanted to emphasize the lyrics, because they have something to say, and they say it eloquently. This song sounds like a promise that the duo have a lot to deliver. Be ready.
