Canadian group PhÃ¨dre dished out this track less than a week ago with little fanfare, but is now gaining more exposure thanks to one of 2012's most prevalent artists, Grimes. Earlier this week the Canadian songstress was quoted saying, "All I can say is that it doesn't get much cooler than PhÃ¨dre, and this is one catchy fucking song."
Daniel Lee and April Aliermo of Hooded Fang, along with Airick Woodhead of Doldrums, combine together to create music that launch a lucid sonic attack upon your ears. In its greatest efforts, "Cold Sunday" takes shape in a variety of genres, giving us a plethora of creative and intriguing sounds with ambiguous allure. Right at the start of the song we get a glimpse into what pure insanity might sound like. I can make out hazy demonic murmurs, wobbly drums and a tiptoeing beat that builds up into an outburst of pop-infused hip hop.
Clearly, this description sounds a little obscure, but this song is anything but normal. Imagine Neon Indian, Of Montreal and Outkast procreating and giving birth to a skitzed-out alien baby and you get "Cold Sunday."
