Swedish House Mafia – Greyhound

New track from the Mafia! Coming out with a strong instrumental, expect this tune to be heard everywhere. Tweaked, this final version of the song is changed slightly from the version SHM previewed previously on BBC Radio 1. Now, this song is going to get famous regardless of its merit, simple because it’s by the Mafia. So does this track have legs to stand on by itself? The answer is yes. It’s easy to fall into a trap of constantly wanting fresh EDM music to the point where you no longer even consider how good a track is, as long as it’s new.

You don’t have to worry about that here. This track is decent. With two 4/4 bars of ascending synths, which then build upon themselves to become grander, this track crescendoes, brings it back down with a brief techno sounding interlude, with some glitch/fidget sounds, a brief piano portion, then builds itself again. Emphasis on the high hat, switch up the synth pattern a little, make the synth line chords, boom. Use that formula, let the rest of the song play itself out. Perhaps not the most original song, but enjoyable at least. 3.9/5.

Here’s the music video version, featuring robotic greyhounds racing around a desert. After the “Save The World” video, where dog were the heroes, and now this, it has become very apparent that the Swedish House mafia love dogs:

And here’s the full version, from the BBC 1 radio rip:
