The first thing I thought about when I heard this song is that I hadn't heard a bass sound like this since 1990. In the 80s, the use of chorus effects and distortion at this volume was common in a lot of songs such as most of the The Cure stuff, or even that song called Take My Breath Away I don't remember who sang but my mind automatically linked together when I heard the first single of Trailer Trash Tracy's; that and the Twin Peaks OST. This contrast between silent and loud and sweet voice and distortion has been extremely explored before so originality maybe is not the first thing you would associate with this band who present themselves with this first single out in NoPainInPop. But when the final result is as beautiful as Candy Girl you forget about if something sounds like something else or if you've heard everything before. Pop music has already been on for ages and it's really hard not to be inspired by all the stuff you've grown up with. We are going to have to follow closely if the next steps explore other fields and they can develop a proper sound of their own or at least continue offering beautiful songs to listen to in your room while traveling back in time and remember when everything sound so fresh and new.
