Universe Moves So Fast by Occurrence is a refreshing new number. It seamlessly blends catchy melodies and introspective lyrics. The track kicks off with a suspenseful drum and synth blend that perks up your ear immediately. The synth then makes an entry adding a lively gothic element as it sounds similar to an organ.
While the song is 3:40 seconds, a majority of it is spent grooving to the instrumentals. The lyrics look mundane at first glance. When you look closer, they bare enough meaning for there to be multiple interpretations. It gives us a birds-eye view of the world, literally. We hear the singer refer to us (He says you so We will put ourselves in “you’s” place) as naive pigeons. “Worlds are falling apart. Who will be top clown? Universe moves so fast.”. Almost as if to say “You can do all you want but is this all going to pay off?”. This urges people to live in the present rather than fearing the future that is largely out of our control. The guitar entrance comes in and transports you into a world of blues. This adds such richness to the sounds that culminate in your ear.
A film that deals with consequences of this sort is Good Time by Bennie Safdie and Josh Safdie. A botched up bank robbery lands Connie’s brother Nick in jail. The film is then about Connie trying to get his brother out of jail by any means he can. The beginning with the synth-drums that has you on your toes as the suspense builds in this thriller movie.
Occurrence has created a stand-out Indie-pop song that is sure to put you in a rocket and launch you into another world! Their unique soundscape and distinctive writing is a must-listen for fans of EDM and synth-pop.
