The B-Side: Solar Powered Moon Tower

We often talk about bangers on this blog. Songs that have hooks and energy and make you want to shake that booty or shake a fist at the sky, but not often enough do we talk about thinkers. “I’m A Monster, Can’t You See” by Solar Powered Moon Tower is a thinker. Falling somewhere between the spoken word art pop of Laurie Anderson and a more current lo-fi bedroom synth vibe, it’s the kind of song that grabs you in a different way. The somewhat cryptic lyrics causing you to listen again and again to try and decipher (especially the whispered) and in the process you realize that the scratchy spaced out melodies are in their own way, a banger of a different kind.
