Angry at The Happy Kid
Boyish hit jaded frustrations on the head with "Congratulations" — an alt soft ballad full of floaty melancholy and cloud pop sounds.
Ah! The joy of listening to a happy-sad track like "Congratulations" truly is a guilty pleasure. It takes skill to balance your creation so neatly on the line between pure soft ballad sadness and alt-pop joy but Boyish does it perfectly.
A driving drum and distant flying guitar give the track not only a strong presence but also a very intelligently designed and almost happy top layer, that hides far more than just the sounds you hear.
I've looped it 5 times and it's still giving me more.
