Donkeyboy - City Boy

"Underneath this doubt there's an ego"

I've established that Donkeyboy have one of the worst band name in pop music a long time ago, but that doesn't really matter because boy they're excellent. And they're back! City Boy is the first teaser from their upcoming album and, from the sound of it, they're going a little more electronic. While this might not be as lush as their past singles, I'm pleased that it's more uptempo. At first, the processed vocals irritated me, but I've grown to really love them--especially with the overall sound of the record. It will be interesting to see how this band develops. Their first (fantastic) album was a big hit in Scandinavia but couldn't find much traction anywhere else. I'm not sure if this is the song to break them out of cult status, but it's definitely a step in an interesting direction. I'm really loving it, especially the trippy music video.

The processed sound threw me off too. It is a bit of a departure from the sound on tracks like "Ambitions" and "Sometimes". The reason it did not break ground outside of Scandinavia is obvious. It got absolutely no radio airplay in any other country. It is difficult for a song to have a chance at getting promotion if it is shut out from the main avenue for music exposure for the masses.
