Tim: This sounds familiar. So, so familiar. But can I place it? Can I hell.
Tom: It’s Zedd and Elley Duhé’s “Happy Now”. I mean, it’s distinct enough, but that’s what you’re thinking of.
Tim: It’s good track, mind, very good, and every little bit stands out. The first part starting out very strong, sounding like a chorus from some unidentifiable other song, then that instrumental dance breakdown, and then the final singy-shouty bit, also a bit familiar but not quite as much.
Tom: You’re not wrong! That’s some of the most promising first seconds I’ve heard in a while. And, once you get over the fact that it isn’t Happy Now, then yep — there’s a lot of good work in here.
Tim: All sounds good, then we go round and do it again for another 83 seconds. And then we’re done, rhythm still in our head.
Tom: And humming the melody to “Happy Now”.
