Following up on their full-length self-titled debut, the Montreal based outfit Horse Doctor bring us their latest single "Playa" today.
Clocking in at sub-three minutes, "Playa" brings in tasteful elements of early 2000s era progressive/post-hardcore revival. Fans of classic groups such as Rival Schools, At The Drive-In, Sparta, and Radiohead will certainly turn their heads at this very relatable rock tune.
Although recorded remotely, this track exemplifies a nice reverbing overall sound that makes the mix sound huge. Nice transitions of smacking snare drums leading into rolls are backed by solid bass and dueling guitar leads coming together. All of this is behind a very angst-driven vocal performance, reminiscent of performers like Thom Yorke or Jim Ward among others.
Short and sweet, this track is a brighter addition to the Horse Doctor repertoire, and certainly one to give a listen.
