I can’t remember the last time an EDM put a smile on my face. There’s something charismatically warming about Metapsion’s new upbeat jangling track Old Rules Don’t Apply. The instance warmth and resonance of the track comes from Metaspions genius infusion of Folk and Electronica to create folktronica. You’d expect the combination of those genres would be like eating fish with cheese (yes people do that), but it works. It not only works, it’s absolutely beautiful, whilst being frustratingly hard to capture the essence of this magnanimous hit through my words, no matter how flowery they may be. Metaspion started out as a rock musician, but shared the same sentiment that I do, that there’s not really many more places you can take rock music without it sounding like a revivalist assimilation of sound. Unlike Metaspion, I was never going to be the one to break the wheel of the constant re-churning of sound.
You can check out Metaspions 2018 debut single Old Rules Don’t Apply on Spotify, whilst you get excited for his album release in May 2018
