The latest single from Gainesville alternative band Arrows in Action is a heightened pop song with metal/metalcore backing. It enters with a smoothly produced arrangement of low synth and aux percussion snaps, akin to some of Eurovision’s moodier entries. The verse builds and, at its pinnacle, cannonballs into a seismic wave of metal-EDM with overdriven guitar and heavy drums, exactly like the soundtrack to your favorite NecroDancer game.
The second verse reveals the soaring vocals of featured artist Taylor Acorn with a lovely classical piano accompaniment. The ensuing duet between Arrows in Action’s lead vocalist and Acorn is dramatically performed, boldly relaying the track’s passionate message. Everything is superbly performed and produced.
