Lower Dens’s tune Brains is an epic track touching on shoe gaze and garage rock genres. What I like most about Brains is that it creates its own magic by going against the standard formula for songwriting. It begins simply with quick tempo drumming accompanied by plucking guitars, then drifts along with drawn-out melodies. It reaches an intense climax of light echoing vocals and percussion combining perfectly together to leave you only wanting more.
