The Love Theme – Two
The story beings with the ska-inflected “Boogaloo,” chronicling the mating dance performed by hapless men in nightclubs attempting to secure a mating partner – or at least cop a touch and a squeeze in the back seat of a shared taxicab.
“Bum Bum Bum,” featuring guest vocals from Brazilian Carlos Henrique Pela (The Gioania Project), is a bass driven electro-fuelled ode to Electra, and the inability of men to grow beyond their infantile need for T&A
Like a seven-year-old marriage, the pace slows down with the epic “Tension.” Are humans meant to be monogamous? Is marriage a sacred union? Whose turn is it to take out the garbage? For some questions, there are no answers. All that we know is eventually the mounting pressure will explode.
Closing out the EP, “Prey” features lyrics composed by another immortal bard, none other than William Shakespeare. Hamlet’s fatal flaw was his procrastination, trying to put off the inevitable. Surely modern man, haunted by performance anxiety, can identify with a hero trying to hold out as long as possible, until a final flurry of activity brings his act to a tragic conclusion.
“Rob Da Bank.” Sounds Nice.
