Single Review – Beck – Wow

Beck is an artist who can seemingly take on any musical task and after following on from the sombre and wistful melancholy of the Grammy award winning Morning Phase, he has went on to produce a fine piece of Plastic Pop last year with the single ‘Dreams’ and this has been followed by his latest single ‘Wow’. Stating his intention to originally feature Chance the Rapper on the track, ‘Wow’ is a track full of drum and fill samples, modulated vocals, Beck reliving his rapping prowess and nonsense lyrics that make sense in some bizarre way. It is demonstrative of Beck’s huge production talent and the sheer diversity of his musical arsenal, if there was any doubt. The track is said to be from an upcoming album but so far no details have been released.
