"Recently we've been finding very peculiar, engaging, and awesome electro alternative music, and more specifically with a touch of cinematic presentation that is not that easy to find, that is the case this time for Temperature Falls, a Norwegian electro alternative duo and their latest release 'Lab Rat'.
This track immediately hooked us from the beginning with its strange atmosphere and particularly the delicate edgy and smooth elegance of the music production.
Talking more in detail, starting from the drums/beats trip-hop oriented production, it possesses a smooth and creative balance between grittiness and clarity, making the drums drive the track with hypnotic dynamics and warmth that push them powerfully.
Another essential aspect is the experimental nature of the synths/sounds that act more as sonic landscapes to the whole cinematic anthem giving it a sometimes more daring and dark facade but preserving its more nuanced and artsy pop structure,
and lastly, the vocals are elegantly performed and polished,
giving the whole song that cinematic enhancement we mentioned earlier; we're talking in terms of this song being sufficiently versatile that could have been featured as a soundtrack of films like David Fincher's Seven, a dark summer teen drama or even a Vampyr videogame.
We highlight the chorus of the track since it achieves an enigmatic even eerie ambiance that is hypnotically catchy!
Don't forget to follow Temperature Falls on their social media, and add the song to your cinematic playlists, you'll love this one, especially on introspective days, but honestly, this track can fit anywhere!
