The Dodos – “Competition”

The Dodos have released their sixth album to date, Individ, very recently, and it’s safe to say that they have not lost any of their witty charm. “Competition,” the new single from the album, is exhilarating and fantastical, all packaged up tightly within the confines of rapid, rampant guitar strums. The vocals are swallowed up by these instrumentals and creates this gorgeous, yet haunting echo throughout, reminiscent of the sort of melancholy effect their album Carrier had. “Competition” is going to sound primitive at first, but it feels well rounded and strong, along with the rest of Individ, and it is the Dodos all the same.
