If you didn’t realise it yet, we are huge fans of the I See Stars album Treehouse. We love the light and shade and this yin and yang combo they have going on in their sound, being just as comfortable with heavy and grungey sound including growls and screams, as they are in angelic vocals and sweet electro lightness.
“Running With Scissors” includes the full I See Stars’ sound spectrum; opening up with a dirty and heavy guitar riff and pummelled drums before quickly lightening up into clean vocals and a simple repeated melody. It’s catchy as anything and sticks with you.
“The truth cannot be anymore clear
And I’m not asking you to hold on
It’s everything that you ever feared
I know you’re trying so hard to move on
It kind of feels like someone
Replaced the heart that once was yours
I’m trying hard to be someone
But falling short of the person
I want to be”
It’s a fun one to spin and lose yourself in the massiveness of it, whether heavy or light. Enjoy.
