Ill Blue feat. Glowie – Tribalist

“Dodgy synths, upsetting autotune and not a huge amount of melody to speak of.”

Tim: Dodgy synths, upsetting autotune and not a huge amount of melody to speak of.

Tom: You’re not selling this.

Tim: No, because by all rights I should hate this track, which is off a British duo and an Icelandic singer.

Tim: And here’s the thing: I really don’t like it, at all.

Tom: Okay, well done, you sold that well. I was expecting you to try and redeem it, which would be a difficult job.

Tim: Admittedly I don’t hate it, but every moment I’m sitting listening to it I’m thinking “I don’t really like this, why am I listening to it?” Except, I never actually get round to switching it off. When a suggested link pops up in the corner to take me to a song that’s probably better, I click on it, stick that new tab in the background, and switch back to get this going again.

Tom: Why?!

Tim: I really know – despite that awful synth, and the dullness of a lot of it, and the uninventive lyrics, I don’t switch it off. And I have no idea why.
