With a quietly percussive snakebitten acoustic rattle, Scandinavian two piece, PERK, release exquisitely crafted melodic pop delight,“Something’s Gotta Give” ; a slow burn, defiant serenade in memoriam.
Verses set restless, upon a shifting, smoldering ambient, uncoil into choruses driven by elegantly orchestrated use of harmony, through embered backing vocal and darkly contrasting instrumentation.“Something’s Gotta Give”, is a willful testament of both subject and Artistic Intent ; an embittered refusal to be broken by jilted love, and impassioned deliverance of a pop song with high musical values, in the face of so much dumbed down chartpop.
A song born in the shadows, standing out all the more, for the slew of new singles courting the bright summer sunshine.
