Song of the Day: Progress

Today’s song is Progress by Great Good Fine Ok.

Synthpop/Indie-Pop.
I enjoy how upbeat this track is, even if there are a ton of eclectic elements to it.

The tone is bright and overall pace of this one is quick.
The concept of ‘growing’ as you get older tends to be a confusing notion.
This song seems to investigate that, looking back.

I used to think I’ve been around the block.
I used to be a lot of things I’m not.

As you listen, you start to notice all of the backing ‘oddities’, like off-kilter sounds and noises.

One of the interesting things about synthpop is that the songs don’t age so sharply as some.
Synth tends to serve as a ‘mash-up’ of genres, which gives it a less definite age.
Granted, yeah, I have no doubt that the electronic noises will date it, but for the most part, it’s hard to pin down.
