Spazz Cardigan Sends Out An Anthemic "S.O.S"
Somewhere in Nashville, amidst the country crooners and the rocking-rolling bands, there’s Spazz Cardigan. An alt-pop artist specializing in utterly addictive radio-ready anthems, he’s had a damn good year. With nearly two handfuls of punchy singles already under his belt, it’s not like we’re missing anything from Spazz, but he just keeps delivering like it’s our birthday all year long.
A few days ago, Spazz dropped “S.O.S.,” unsurprisingly another total bop. The lead single off his upcoming EP, vulnerabilia, out March 22nd, it’s a dynamic singalong weighed down with the kind of heart-heaviness you might miss if you’re not listening hard enough, since it’s masked by Spazz’ signature pop rhythms. Beyond the neon and the joy and the pizzazz is Spazz pleading with himself to nix the bad habits; a huzzah! of sorts to escaping, or at least trying to, the black hole of self-sabotage.
Of course, that’s the underlying message, sitting far beneath a bed of outrageously catchy beats. There’s no downtime for “S.O.S.” From the get-go, it barrels straight through thick slaps of percussion, high-energy guitar riffs, and smooth vocals delivering a desperate entreaty. The song bursts and cracks and pops like it’s dancing — but how could it not when it’s built on an unapologetically exuberant arrangement of fun-fueled pop?
