I Would Die To Be – Ski Lodge

Ski Lodge (@skiiilodge) is an immediate a contradiction. While the name conjures images of comfy cabins, fresh snow, and hot chocolate, the music is decidedly sunny. Andrew Marr, formerly of The Clementines and man behind the band, seems aware of the paradox, penning lyrics such as the conflicting “lost in the heat of winter” in the song “A Game”. The track itself is all surf pop, though, complete with high pitched snare drum, jangling guitars, and sliding background vocals that punctuate the verses with descending vowels that mimic moans. With the abundance of surf music on the buzz market today, it can all get a bit repetitive, but Marr keeps things original with soulful, blues-y rhythms and melodies that are more derivative of the genre’s originators than their modern day counterparts.
