Below the ridiculously engaging vocals is a really fun melody. There is something Peter Gabriel like about the melody that you can’t help but get into. The music makes you bounce to it and creates this great base for both Jones and BenZo. The melody remains the same throughout the single, but there is this guitar riff that you need to listen out for that is simply amazing.
