Last year, we raved about Conrank’s debut album, What’s a FKNG Conrank? He’s released a number of singles since, but the one today out on Circus Records, “Ooba,” is just on another level.
There’s hardly a build before it just plummets you into a cacophony of bass. That being said, the build is especially important in how it builds suspense, using what sounds like modulated horns to punctuate the air, bringing in more horns and synths little by little to truly ramp it up. And then the drop hits you like concrete from 20,000 ft up in the air, penetrating right to the depths of your chest.
I’ll admit the first time I heard the drop at full volume on my speakers, I let out an audible, “Oh my GOD.” While I would have liked a little variation in the second drop, hearing more of the same when it’s this good isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
