If you are in the mood for powerful music, this is it!
In Eel People’s music, they tend to retrieve emotion out of listeners by relying on passionate instrument-play and sobering vocal performances. In “Don’t Have To Die,” their latest single, the band turns things up a notch, delivering a unorthodox tune that never lets up in feel-good vibes and negative sentiments (I know, it’s a very weird combination).
I’m not going to lie, this song freaks me out a bit.. While the instrumental to it features a soothing/up-tempo sound, everything else about it feels a bit bizarre. Vocally, the lead singer of Eel People sounds upbeat and positive, yet lyrically, he talks about possibly wanting to die. While I tried to think of several different theories on why this song sounds inspirational, I said “f**k it” midway through and decided to enjoy it instead!
Eel People, don’t die, we need you to make more high quality songs like the ones you have HERE!
