Song of the Day: Time to Pretend

Today’s song is Time to Pretend by MGMT.

Indie/Psychedelic Pop.
Wanted to shake it up a bit and this serves as a perfect song for that.

Nothing like a solid debut album.
Seriously, the album rocks for introducing the world to Electric Feel, but this is a great track too.

But there is really nothing, nothing we can do
Love must be forgotten, life can always start up anew.

The electronic hook in this is such a feel-good vibe. Gives mid-2000’s vibes perfectly.

Kinda hate the lyrics, but also appreciate them.
It’s a weird love/hate relationship.

Their sound is more of a surf-rock feel compared to others in the genre, like Tame Impala.
Still, their work can’t be ignored. It was pretty bombastic for the time.
