NEW TRACK: Turbo Goth - "Coastal Catastrophe"

Even by the loosest of music standards, Turbo Goth’s new single strikes me as particularly distant and strange, embracing the fairy cyborg-pop of Grimes, Purity Ring and even Nite Jewel without direct appeal to human emotions at all. Devoid of hook and structure, and floating instead on a sparkling cluster of digital textures, “Coastal Catastrophe” sounds like a fembot programmed to coo a twee jam of its own, plasticized and processed into what passes off as music for internet age ennui.

  1. Nice! Just as any song, it has a beat, melody, and the basic structure: verse, chorus, verse, chorus. hehe

    Verse1:
    Stir it up in your head, do things seem fine?
    Giving in to what you think might be alright
    Till the end you whisper silently
    Stirring up thoughts of what might be
    (2x)

    Chorus:
    Sharks and shooting stars
    Coastal catastrophe
    Pouring straight for hours
    Too bad you cant see

    Verse2:
    Stir it up in your head, do things seem fine?
    Giving in to what you think might be alright
    Till the end you whisper silently
    Stirring up thoughts of what might be
    (2x)

    Chorus:
    Sharks and shooting stars
    Coastal catastrophe
    Pouring straight for hours
    Too bad you cant see
