Cars and Calories - To The Extreme
This song is just so catchy and easy to get into. There isn't too much production and it doesn't sound overworked. Between the lyricists and the production team, they have created a track that focuses on the best qualities of everyone. There's no way in the world you're going to get the chorus out of your head with anything but a crowbar or a song from the Frozen soundtrack. The way the instrumentation swells during the chorus and the hook just pulls you right along with it. It's got all the elements to just own not only dance charts but pop charts as well. It's fun song that will have you listening on repeat for quite a while.
This was my introduction to Cars & Calories and after going back and listening to the other tracks, they have a consistent quality to their music that assures me that they aren't simply a flash in the pan. Their particular brand of pop music just builds into this huge ball of energy that can't be denied. Because they're so high energy, it wouldn't be unheard for them to play huge stadiums or smaller club style venues with everyone in the audience just partying their butts off. I think the consistency between their three tracks bodes well for a fantastic debut album. I want to say that they've tapped into two of my favorite things, Cars and Calories. But I now have to just add them to my list of favorite things too.
