Whoa. Now this is a song that I can let grow on me. Alligator Indian’s single “Corpsing” is haunting and innovative, fearlessly whacking its own avant-garde path.
As soon as I pressed play, I was perplexed, but in an intriguing way. I wasn’t sure where the song was going to go, but I’m pleasantly surprised. Within the chaos and obscurity of this track, there is most definitely structure — a very mathematical one at that. The vocals are haunting, the instrumentals are at times creepy and unsettling, but when you combine the two it just makes sense.
It’s so refreshing to hear a band that is unabashedly doing their very own thing in a modern music world where mimicry is running rampant. Alligator Indian will be releasing their More Songs About Animals and TV EP on September 17. I can’t wait!
