Song Review - Electrical

by Eves The Behavior
EP: TBA, (???, 2015)

I'm nothing more than skin and bone,
With wires that make me tremble.

Hannah Karydas may have gone through a couple of moniker changes over the past couple of years, but that hasn't stopped the ever increasing awesomeness of her music. There's even been studies into it...

As you can see in the highly legit graph above (that definitely wasn't made in Paint), research showed that Karydas has shown a lot of growth musically as she worked out the artist she wanted to be. Under the guise of Eves The Behavior, we're witnessing a performer truly coming into her own and finding her voice. If you refer to the highly legit graph above once more, you'll see the current definition of her music would be 'Fucking amazing'.

You'd think a song as brilliant as 'TV' would be hard to top, but that's exactly what's happened with 'Electrical'. With your new favourite chorus and a perfectly dreamy vibe that exists even with those ominous synths backing up the fears in the lyrics, you're not going to be able to get enough of this one. I don't know how Eves The Behavior is able to make this whole music making thing seem so effortlessly simple, but she's done it again. Describing the track, she's said...

"I feel like it's commenting on the friction between the organic / analogue and the synthetic / digital and the quest to find a meaningful connection between the two. The song is triumphant but it's also bittersweet. I stumbled out of a sort of numbness into both beauty and gloom. And the simple fact of feeling something made me woozy and victorious at the same time." - Eves The Behavior

I think we can all agree after listening to 'Electrical' that we just feel victorious. We're the big winners today. Balancing all the essential ingredients of the very best in pop while not being afraid to embrace an experimental nature is going to take the artist formerly known as Hannah Karydas very far. We'll definitely be keeping an eye out for her upcoming debut EP.

Matt Bond gives 'Electrical' five Bjork heads out of five...
