The jam is a synth-fueled groove starting with lyrics straight out of Steven King’s nightmares. “Sleep walking in the dead of night / Ooooooh… / Black cat crosses your path… / Until you petition the Lord” / “…I used to talk to demons with my ouija board but / Not anymore…” The Halloween imagery doesn’t let up as the track stalks on… “I’m a necro-romantic / I’m-a suck on your blood / Are you ready for Freddy / Yeah, knock on the door.”
The lyrics stand out to achieve a distinctively creepy theme, but they don’t reach the level of seasonal novelty. This is a jam suited for anytime of year, Halloween or otherwise. Nevertheless, this weekend in particular, throw on your costume and throw on some Ariel Pink… You won’t be disappointed.
