MT WARNING.

There’s something to be said about the power of repetition. MT WARNING‘s new track ‘Youth Bird’ showcases it in various guises, from that propelling guitar, to the constant chorus/verse structure that is only differentiated by a slight change in instrumentation each time. It never gets tired, and instead manages to somehow embed itself into your head without having any big epic crescendo to make it memorable.

I think ‘Youth Bird’ is memorable for it’s consistency, it’s unrelenting drum and sharp guitar groove, and the almost constant eagerness to not leave things hanging. What sounds like the bridge or middle eight section appears with just 40 seconds to go, adding a slight bit of relief to the constant chorus/verse structure. It’s attempt to take us somewhere else though is met with a call back to the chorus line in the final 15 seconds.

This is intricate and well-thought-out songwriting at it’s best.
