Single Review – Darwin Deez – Kill Your Attitude

The latest single, Kill Your Attitude, from indie-pop artist Darwin Deez comes after two years of silence since his last album release. With a preppy drumbeat and twanging electric guitar it has a flavour of modern punk rock but is undoubtedly pop at the core. Darwin’s high-pitched vocals are fun and unpretentious, yet somehow the track feels a little hollow. The chorus is catchy and easy to sing along to, but the basic bassline and uncomplicated strum of the lead guitar soon become repetitive and somewhat grating.

A guitar in the song’s break does add a little variety and interest, adding a genuine rock element which is refreshing to hear in an indie-pop number, but once the chorus kicks back in once again it’s a case of simply waiting for the song to end. It’s a single with many merits, but not one which makes you want to listen again and again.
