Music Overview: Lapillus – Gratata

Rate this post

Lapillus - GratataWith Okay-pop, it’s gotten to the purpose the place I can virtually predict how I’ll really feel a couple of tune from its title alone. The exclamation “Gratata” sends shivers down my backbone, conjuring photos of lame finger-gun dance strikes and clanging beat drops that hit with all of the nuance of a bathroom tumbling down a staircase. That is to say: the destiny of Lapillus’s Gratata was all however sealed earlier than I even pressed play on the music video.

Look, I really feel for this group. They have been already saddled with one of many worst debut tracks of the yr and so they’re managed by an company that has its fair proportion of points. With this in thoughts, Gratata isn’t almost as unhealthy as I’d have anticipated. The issue is, we’ve heard this precise tune no less than twenty occasions over the previous yr or two. There may be actually nothing distinctive about it. This makes it troublesome to have any opinion about Gratata – both good or unhealthy. It’s a well-produced facsimile of a development that — towards all odds — nonetheless appears to have enamel inside the business.

On the plus facet, I get pleasure from elements of the instrumental. I can’t inform if that’s sitar I’m listening to or simply some fancy synth run by way of a filter, however I recognize the manufacturing’s inexhaustible power. It doesn’t lurch right here or there, or drop out simply once you count on it to get good. Sadly, there isn’t a lot of a tune draped over this instrumental. The women are made to shout from starting to finish, whether or not it’s the titular (and oh-so-predictable) chant or the incessant sing-talk of the verses. Even when their vocals get a highlight in the course of the pre-chorus, the melody stays clipped and unremarkable. It’s a disgrace, as a result of Lapillus gained’t have the ability to distinguish themselves from the pack with materials this uninspired.
