Liner Notes: 

For once, the music came before the lyrics. Got a good beat going, and then this 1 line came to me. Am omen of ill portent? Or the feel-good hit of the season? :P Either way, I'm pretty happy with this piece. Marking it as a favourite!

Lyrics: 

What the fuck is this shit?



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Love that beat like someone knocking on a door, I almost expected the lyric to go:
Knock knock
who's there?
What the fuck is this shit

I'll leave the punchline for you, but yeah there's a catchiness in there with that repeated synth motif.
A kick and hihat with a four on the floor would get this really moving

Okay, I know I already mentioned Killer Klowns from Outer Space, but your aesthetic really has a circus horror quality to it. There's some. intensity to this one. Good work!

When the insectoid aliens first landed on Earth with their city-sized spaceships, in addition to the burning and genocide and enslavement, no one had any idea that they could also produce kick-ass music.

Really quite wonderfully strange! The high-pitched keyboard has an almost theremin-like quality, which is reminiscent of 1950s alien films. The next part is very carnivalesque and apocalyptic and funny as well. Enjoyed!

That's pretty exciting weirdness! It makes me smile, something about the insistence and the 'party' feeling when it jumps up in pitch. Conjures up some weird visuals of a guy opening the door to an alien rave!
