If you’re well versed in your pop vernacular, you’ll be only too aware of the genre’s lyrical predilection for drug referencing and the endless possibility for this to be neatly contrasted with the ecstatic highs and debilitating comedowns that love can be known to provoke. It began with Roxy’s Love Is The Drug I’d reckon, and has since been grossly bastardised by the likes of Ke$ha, etc. Though more recently there’s been something of an influx in the number of songs citing a hunger for drums, and the two combine here on what is, frankly, a total banger from Brooklyn trio Little Daylight. Having cut their teeth remixing the likes of Passion Pit, Penguin Prison and most probably more alliterative acts centred around a certain letter, Overdose is anything but your average pop track in that it cunningly lends itself as much to the nagging esotericism and faint tribalism of Yeasayer as it does to Scandipop stalwarts Robyn, Niki & the Dove, and others I fail to recall though that in keeping with this extended trend, likely have a somehow avifaunal moniker. And although pop is of course but a reflection of the contemporary which consequently finds itself in a state of constant flux, we’d go so far as to acclaim this the quintessential listen of this year thus far for it’s the most refined pop splurge since Frida Sundemo’s Indigo. And having already conquered the widely lionised Hype Machine chart, don’t be surprised to see it scale similar heights in those more exoteric realms defined by Top 40s and so forth.
