Tim: New one off Norway’s finest purveyors of electropop; have a listen, etc.
Tom: Well, that’s a great and promising verse hampered by an unmemorable chorus.
Tim: Now, I like a good lyric video as much as the next guy, but sometimes I’m worried I read too much into them.
Tom: Oh no. Not again.
Tim: For example, this here is entirely standard – words coming and going as they should do, no typos or anything, all should be fine. Except. Except. What’s happening with the silhouettes, please. Because there are four people who make up Donkeyboy – Cato (vocals and guitar), Kent (vocals & synth), Peter (guitar, acting vocals) and Thomas (drums) – and here we’ve also one non-credited vocalist, Linnea, who also featured on their biggest hit, Ambitions, and is presumably the full colour one who shows up briefly.
SO WHAT DOES THE FADING MEAN? We have at most four silhouettes there at any one time, and why do they come and go? What is happening? Who do they represent? What does it signify? What does it mean? WHAT DOES ANYTHING MEAN?
Tom: It means the animator played about with the ‘opacity’ tool a bit, Tim.
Tim: Decent track, though.
