Josh Birdsong’s new single “Complex Context” is mostly informed by ‘plinky’ guitar atmosphere, reminding one of The Edge’s echo soundscapes. A sly beat slithers in, as does keys, while the vocal floats atop the swirl. Not that we much go anyplace really here, and I’m not sure if the music is ‘complex,’ as much as simply layered. But Josh Birdsong certainly presents a specific sound and vision here.
I like the guitar as it increases in its severity and plays us out to the end. There are some creative mins at work here with where to place what for sure. Overall I think what we get here is enough to prompt one to want to hear more.
