Dotter – Heatwave

‘Every part of it is just, “yes, this is what I want to hear in a song”.’

Tim: Follow-up to the Melodifestivalen entry Cry, with no small number of similarities.

Tim: So I really like this song – pretty much every part of it. Thing is, I don’t really have much to say about why I like it, though not in the sense that it’s generic, because it isn’t at all. It’s simply that every part of it is just, “yes, this is what I want to hear in a song”.

Tom: That’s because your brain wants to listen to You’ve Got The Love.

Tim: Hmmm…maybe…ish…

Tom: Okay, that’s a little harsh, the melody line is at least somewhat different, but this sounds like someone’s just applied the KLF’s Manual to Florence and the Machine and got this out of it.

Tim: The vocal is good, the instrumentation behind it is very good, and all in all it’s just…good. Really good.

Tom: You’re not wrong there, though. It’s not a bad track.

Tim: I feel I should be saying more, but I can’t really think of anything that needs saying.
