It is a truth universally known that Frode Fivel are masters of the soundscape. They seem to not have an upper limit as they have outdone themselves with Goat Simulator. Goat Simulator followed the release of Don’t Rock The Boat. These are two songs that are completely different in nature.
While both follow a classical rock beat structure, Goat Simulator draws you in with its hilariously serious take on the game. And it works! It throws its listeners into their chaotic and carefree world of stuck ostriches and vanilla ice-cream robbers. Frode Fivel has a tight production that is polished with each element of the track blending seamlessly together. The simple track does a great job by contrasting voice and lyrics against the classical piano. It builds gradually with nothing but the vocals, piano and synth. They add a layer of whimsy and humour to the track.
Zootopia is a film that sells this Utopian world where everyone lives harmoniously despite the food chain. Films based on animal kingdoms have a vast field of absurdity to play with. Much like the song, the film also has its own take on the classics. We see an Arctic Shrew that gets named as Mr Big and mimics the characteristic of Vito Corleone from The Godfather. For reference, an arctic shrew is as big as a mouse. Goat Simulation can be played as asst Mayor Bellwether (A sheep) gets arrested and it would be immaculate to watch! This was for her mastermind plan to wreck the city which fails all thanks to Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde.
All in all Goat Simulator by Frode Fivel is highly recommended to listeners. It’s fun, edgy and classical in nature. It will have you mesmerised by its absurdity. Precisely why you’ll be going back for more.
