Single Review – Bon Iver – 33 GOD

Justin Vernon has not released a Bon Iver album since 2011, with only the occasional single or feature being proof of his musical existence. He had been part of the Hipster’s handbook of instant street cred, but much has changed for Vernon since then and it is had a big impact upon his album. Perhaps trying to ditch that hipster tie, he has seemingly took on sampling and electronica and applied it it his mellow tones. This is certainly the case with ’33 GOD’ which involves these elements along with a steady trap drop and a ringing falsetto with elements of auto tune and voice manipulation. It is hard to pin down the sound and at the moment this seems to an issue. Once he can get those conflicting. Parts in order, then perhaps we will have a promising prospect on our hands with his third studio album 22, million.
