This is an ultra-dark subversion of a Kesha-esque drug anthem, much like Sia’s “Chandelier”, especially in its combination of ultra-catchy pop melody with disturbingly unconventional and subversive subject matter for a pop song. Whether you prefer this to “Chandelier” seems to depend on whether you consider the latter song’s cacophonous messiness to be a bug or a feature. This song is certainly much easier to listen to than “Chandelier”, but its slick pop polish also means it doesn’t have anywhere near the shattering dramatic impact of that song. It’s a fine song in its own right, but I’d argue that “Chandelier” did a better job of subverting the tone of the irresponsible party anthems it’s deconstructing, and is just a more effective realization of the idea both songs were going for.
Verdict: Good, but I’d favor “Chandelier” over this one.
