One song. Every day. Alphabetical order.
Shadow (from Pink Tape – 2013)
Shadow emerges as track two in the Pink Tape album, and has always suffered in comparison to Rum Pum Pum Pum. Under the hood, the song is almost as experimental, but the overall arrangement is much more muted. Warped vocals open Shadow and remain a reoccurring presence, melded with music box-like percussion and jazzy touches of distorted synths. The entire thing sounds like a runny watercolor painting – barely holding its form before it blends into an amorphous puddle. This approach is admirable – made more so by f(x)’s light vocal performance of the sprightly melody – but it can be difficult to grasp onto.
~ Rest in peace, Sulli. We will forever be grateful for the incredible music and spirit you left behind ~
