Instantly you are hit you are with the emotion of I Wish You Were Dead. Stunning vocal harmonies embellish the opening of the song.
Each section of the track feels like a different part of a story. The change in pace and feel makes this a really exciting track that demands your full attention.
Around the halfway mark the energy amps up with a sudden burst of sound. This comes to settle again with a deep and dulcet vocal line which sits at the very bottom of the track.
A stabbing piano accompanies a booming bassline, and the overall effect is stunning. There is a dark seduction to this section which pulls you further and further into the tracks clutches until it falls to a close with the solitary line ‘I Wish You Were Dead’.
I Wish You Were Dead is an interesting track from Three Day Monk. Holding you in its grip with deep-seated emotion and intricate layers you find yourself thinking about the track long after it has ended.
