feat. Manic Pixie Dream Girl
Anyone who knows me, knows that I am quite obsessed w/the idea of pixies - including the trope “Manic Pixie Dream Girl.” I decided to look up some music on SoundCloud to see if I could find something that captures the spirit of MPDGs. This is one of the tracks I found.
I don’t know much about it, other than it is titled “Believing” and uploaded by the user “Represent,” and features Manic Pixie Dream Girl. I assume that is the vocalist?
Either way, this track has that melancholy undertone that I love so much. It’s pretty and sad. It reminds me of a lighter Zola Jesus. Not quite as dark, but still in the same emotional vain.
Musically this song is pretty well produced. I love the weaving of synths and beats, how the bass is present yet subtle - until of course you get to the dubstep break down. But even that is well placed and not face melting or overbearing. This song is what a lot of pop music should be.
