Sweet Witches (from Pinocchio / Hot Summer – 2011)

Sweet Witches is an off-kilter electro pop track with a bit of a lounge feel. It’s a real oddball, from its simple synth beat to its staccato melody. Almost the entire track hinges on the same herky-jerky rhythm, which threatens to make it feel a little one-note. But, the quirkiness of the production keeps things interesting. I especially love the rubbery electro bass that runs through several moments during the verses. And as much as I usually hate aegyo-style singing, I think it fits quite well here. I’m kind of surprised that this isn’t a Thomas Troelsen produced track, because it reminds me a lot of his work with Danish groups Junior Senior and Superheroes.
