“Play the Part” is a washed-out, summer vibin’, lush reverb drenched psychedelic rock track.
The song enters immediately with the chorus, which has a thick, hazy, trippy, hypnotic and layered vocal melody which sends instant feelings of nostalgia, freedom and longing. The soothing and calm drum rhythm enhance the song and the tempo is perfect to convey emotions of being calm, peaceful and intimate.
The dreamy vocals re-enter in the verses with strong, powerful lyrics to carry the song to new heights. The soaring, luscious, fazed synths appear at places throughout the song to further add to its energy, mystery and mellow feel. The instrumentation has all the elements of a 60s/70s psychedelia blended with modern day sounds, including tambourines, drums, folk acoustic guitars, tight bass, shakers, synths, effects and echo drenched vocals.
The song takes a huge turn in the middle where the is a massive breakdown section. The electric guitars kick in and the drums get very heavy in this section which brings a feeling of chaos, aggression and power. The repeated, swirling vocals fill in the sound spectrum to give this dreamy track a real space of its own.
“Play the Part” would be perfectly suited to almost any new project as it has a good variation of themes and instrumental elements.
