I love this, holy freaking crap. That chorus is catchy as hell.
Van Weezer – which I’m assuming will contain songs with this type of sound – comes out on May 7th. Contrast this sound with the sound of the OK Human album they just released at the beginning of the year:
I like when bands experiment with different sounds like this. Coldplay has gotten a lot of crap for this kind of thing, but people need to lay off because Coldplay is
untouchable goodness allowed to experiment just like everyone else.
I don’t have anything else to say today, haha. I just wanted to make you aware of this fantastic song in case you hadn’t heard it.
I’m a mild fan of Weezer. I like them but I’m not like OMFG WEEZER like I am with Coldplay or Muse (but mostly just Coldplay). So when I saw that they had a new album, OK Computer, on iTunes, I was like, “okay, cool, let’s check it out and see if there are any good songs.”
There are a LOT of good songs.
Apparently Weezer decided that strings were a good addition to their sound and holy hell, what a good decision. There’s so much cello on this album. Here are some favorites:
The strings in this are sooooooo goooooood yooooooo. That low note at the start gives me feels.
More strings! Also, super sing-able chorus.
This is one of the most “Weezer” songs they’ve ever made. 2020 hipster vibes.
Another one with a very sing-able chorus.
