As you’d expect from an electronica track titled “Deaths of Despair”, there’s quite the serving of immersive aural despondency within the instrumental mix from up and coming artist Thrv.
Yet, as the mix progresses, you’ll hear the full tonal palette explored as the six-minute soundscape takes you through a journey of happy Synth Pop, snappy Funk-driven Disco, and heavy riff-laden Rock riffs thrown in for good measure.
With the Synthpop and soaring riffs combined, Deaths of Despair feeds you all of the best parts of the 80s simultaneously. Which may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but we certainly appreciate the all too palpable ingenuity in Deaths of Despair.
