Song review: Alien Kidd
Band: Dani House
Location: Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA
Date of Release: 01 May 2014
Reviewer: The Astr0naut
This song struck me in the feels because it’s something that I would find myself listening to at the very end of the summer, possibly at the last sunset of the season, watching it slowly fall towards the other side of the world. This song has the indie capability to be very popular, and the type of playing the guitarist used could appeal to a lot of people, but the vocals prevent that from happening.
So as for the vocals, they aren’t bad because they do fit the sound of the song, but after a while they just get very old and bland. It’s a good thing that this song was only about two minutes, but at the same time, I would have liked to see if the guitar changed a bit if another section of the song was implemented.
From what I understand, this is also a one person project. Generally one person projects are lacking in one point or another, not going to point fingers, but Dani House definitely has solo music down to a point.
This song specifically reminded me of the new album by The Menzingers for some reason. The Goblinpunk tendencies set it aside from other indie punk that roams around the internet’s music world.
The rhyme scheme of the song is actually pretty interesting. Because none of the lyrics really rhyme, it opens the song to a larger focal point of lyrical ability. Instead of bars that are held to specific words, these lyrics go beyond that and meld directly into the song writing.
Now the songwriting, in tail, is actually a lot better than I thought it would be. The dual track of guitars really set the mood of the song to a summer atmosphere, like previously said. The only thing I can say negatively is that the vocals need a tad bit more work. Other than that, I loved it. Downloaded the song voluntarily and am waiting for more!
Overall IPHYB Rating: 9/10
Personal Enjoyment Factor: 9/10
