The structure is fairly commonplace, a riff, verse, chorus, verse, chorus and then signiture instrumental break. Said 'break' (as named by muso-types) is typical of that found throughout Fine-Lines, chiming melodies that swirl drunkenly round Placebo-esque drive, building up to chaotic climaxes. Where Moodswings differs is here when the song should, by all rights, peak and end in a couple of hell-raising phrases, it decides that everything should collapse into the ferocious torrent that is the opening riff.
This outro is fuelled with such intense anger that one wonders if the devil himself wrote it. Maybe Som Warnder & co, undoubtedly one of the industries most talented groups are venting their frustration at having had such meagre success for what has been stunning work.
Any which way, it doesn't seem to matter. This track demands attention, and is worth the cost alone. The B-sides are very avarage, so maybe it is best to buy Between the Lines for a little more sterling. Oh and if you insist on buying the single, get CD which features Vapour Trails, a humble mixture of Losing Touch/Always Your Way and Cemented Shoes.
To me, Moodswings sounds slightly more sophisticated than most of the tracks on finelines and hopefully this is an indication of what their next album will sound/feel like. I haven't heard much on what people think of this, but I'm sure it'll be one of the best singles you'll hear this summer.
