Sweeping synthesizers introduce everything setting the tone for the album. Gradually the track evolves choosing a careful buildup before the guitars go for a glorious solo soaring up into the sky. An exploration of the sadder thoughts of overcast rainy days allows for an insight into the thoughts that plague so many. Upon fully realizing this idea the way that Channel K breaks out of that funk, with happier more joyous ideas feels particularly palpable. Towards the finale of the piece all comes together in a jagged, colossal riff.
With “Super Queen” Channel K swirls around opting for a dreamy hopeful quality, one that informs the entirety of the piece making it deeply reassuring.
