TOTD #8: The Dorsal Fins – ‘Sedated’

The airy opening synths punctuated by a pattern of modular bleeps open the track before giving way to light, surfy guitars-  a 90s guitar pop revival-revival. The familiar washed out, whiny Californian vocals that are part and parcel of ever  surf punk song ever are also present on this track. Whilst this song may feel derivative at times, the vocals leap around the simple yet charming beat, giving the song an individuality that most of the genre fails to achieve. Although this song isn’t going to change the world, it’s perfect for ‘doo doo’-ing along to on a sweltering day such as this.
