Karma Town provides a light combination of retro-wave/synth-pop with more tight musicianship to fans. The song itself – the lyrics, the melody, and the vocal performance is flowing throughout “Oh No” – is considerably more apparent than these auditory building blocks. Take away the hook, the concept, the sincere tones, and the unity between the vocal melody and the surrounding instruments, and you’ve got much more than a mere genre flag or comparison.
The fullness of the sound surrounds you in the same manner as a naturally bustling environment would, with multiple elements colliding in one area and creating an unexpected peace in the process. This is where your thoughts go wild, and your mind drifts to the beat of whatever beat it picks up.
So maybe the vocal melody pulls you along the first time you listen, then perhaps those distant synth sounds carry you along the second time. There appear to be an infinite number of ways to listen to the song. In any event, you’re likely to notice and enjoy the breadth of the musical ability as well as the overall aesthetic of the journey.
The general sound of Karma Town’s song, as is frequently the case with their music, falls in between the retro tones of a simpler time and the retro-wave synth-pop vibes that continue to flood the airwaves even now.
Together, all of this makes it a song for almost everyone who can hear the appeal in the concept and the usage of melody, moderate funk, and uplifting chord progression.
This is fantastic lyricism, familiar yet fresh production, and compelling songwriting. The music works brilliantly at high volumes — a must-have if you genuinely want to forget yourself and immerse yourself in this. I’m excited to hear more.
