My Heart Is A Metronome – Queen

I have to admit, I was a fan of Swedish band, My Heart Is A Metronome before doing this review.  They have genre-spanning sound and manage to pull all the great stops from all the great sounds of the past and present. They also have an interesting story about how they formed, which is worth seeking out; there’s train hopping and beach parties and smokey European bars, etc.

So their latest single, Queen is an inspirational song (I believe) in which the lyricist/singer, in a lackluster tone, is recalling his life and daily rituals. I love the plodding drum machine capturing the monotony of it all.

However, you don’t really know whether or not to believe him because it all seems like not the worse day in the world. The catchy, inspirational chorus confirms one’s hopes of the direction of the song (and his day). Expertly crafted guitars, vocals and production make, Queen a must-have for your early-rise/morning coffee playlist.
