You go into a track expecting melody and respite from the world but Moose Wrench is bent on giving us an experience with Don’t Let Me Down. The track is anything but mainstream and unlike anything you’ve ever heard before. This techno dream ballad falls between rock, techno, experimental and pop. The track makes you wonder what the creation process was like. This is not new for this dream team at all, creating unique ear-worms has always been their forte.
The track begins with the slow swagger creep of beats, and from then on, it’s a steady climb upwards. This banger of a track has an evolution of genres within the span of 4 minutes. This also speaks to the exquisite craftsmanship of the producers in the chord progression department. We also hear the track swell in size with the textures throughout. With distinctive sounds that are brought in, right from the trickle-like sound at the beginning to the rock vocals. Half the song is world-building, you hear the lyrics only once we hit the two-minute mark. You don’t even realize the lack of words because the music speaks loud here.
This track would be perfect in Coraline or at least a new-age iteration of it. This film is known to have given nightmares to so many people. But the imagery that is painted in both the novel and the film is deeply unnerving and a true work of art.
