Showcasing another faultless example of sprawling guitar work, Kurt Vile unveils organic and playful autumnal single, ‘One Trick Ponies’.
Having previously released ‘Loading Zones, and agrarian, coalesce single ‘Bassackwards’; the Philadelphian rocker has revealed ‘One Trick Ponies’. The final single to be taken from his recently-released seventh studio solo album, Bottle It In.
Similar to the atypical Kurt Vile audio watermark, ‘One Trick Ponies’ is centered around a revolving mid-tempo guitar melody that is subtly partnered with a shuffling drum beat, culminating in an affable 5-minute exuberance of colour and playfulness.
Vile’s vocal delivery emanates in an amiable and cordial manner, his lyrics morph between the peculiar and the affectionate throughout the duration – “Some are weird as hell, but we love all/ Some are one trick ponies but we embrace all”. The result is a resplendent vocal performance, as lyrics segue from the tongue with little prompt.
Bottle It In, by Kurt Vile, is available to purchase, now.
