An addictive alt-pop track from Ayleen Valentine and Chaos Canine gets into your head and seduces you with pop samples and urban alt rhythms.
A relatable and youthful story is what Ayleen Valentine delves into with "why do i do this." Not only is it a relatable lyrical journey, but it's also the most thematically satisfying alt-pop sound I've heard in a while — it's a combination of the new age mix-up of urban break rhythms and soft acoustic guitar layering. It's something I've grown to love, and I'm sure most avid listeners of alt-pop are super familiar with it.
Ayleen Valentin takes that familiarity and paints their melancholic identity all over it until the edges start peeling off, leaving nothing but devastating hindsight and beautiful sounds.
