Week Ender – Higher Selves Playdate

The Omega to the Week Starter Alpha, Week Ender is the song we want to send you into the weekend with.

A simple scratchy acoustic guitar progression kicks off “Coming Up Roses” by Higher Selves Playdate but it’s not long before things have built into a glitchy, fuzzed out, synth laced noisy and melodic and glorious anthem to uncertainty. Even though the song never really strays from that original scratchy progression, a multitude of instruments are dug out of HSP’s toy chest to make an appearance, giving the song not only a sense of movement and change but also one of lo-fi epic-ness. Repetitive lyrics add a level of pop hookiness to the whole affair to make one of the unlikeliest catchy ear worms of the year.
