Tune: Ella Metherell – “Rocked”

March 30, 2017

Ella Metherell‘s latest is patient. The young Brisbane songwriter eloquently articulates closure in the ticks and tocks of “Rocked.” There is a subtle sense of metronomic swing that matches the song’s title and artfully shrouds the regret embedded in the lyrics. Percussive textures spout from all angles as the song takes its time to build its immersive whirlpool. Ella’s minimalistic layering creates a slightly weighted feeling akin to her lyrical recollection of a relationship that was never meant to be. Over the concoction of beats and blips, the track’s aching melody shines. Wander through the passive landscape above.
