Vertigo – Mini Mansions ft Alex Turner
This week I can’t get enough of this new track Vertigo from Mini Mansions featuring the chilling vocals of Arctic Monkey’s frontman Alex Turner.
Turner gives this fresh sounding alternative rock track an ethereal quality which is rather haunting. It’s quite a contagious sound I’ve found and while Mini Mansions other songs have many good things about them, Turner’s influence makes Vertigo a stand out.
Described as a dark pysch-pop project by Spotify – Mini Mansions is the brainchild of Queens of the Stone Age bassist Michael Shuman. I would be more inclined to call them alternative rockers with an electronica influence shining through thanks to a lot of synth use.
Vertigo is very catchy – it has a solid bass beat thanks to Shuman, spooky guitar riffs, a singalong invoking chorus and lyrics that keep you guessing.
This is a track any Arctic Monkeys or Queens of the Stone Age fan should like because it has so many elements of their music, but I think Muse and The Killers fans will love it too. It has all the key elements of a classic modern rock song but it sounds new and unique thanks to the alternative elements.
It’ll grow on you with every listen so check it out and let me know what you think!
