Galapagos, the latest single of Lower Dens’ hotly anticipated record The Competition, showcases the masterful balancing act of catchiness and atmospheric touches of Lower Dens songwriter Jana Hunter. Despite occupying an uncanny bleakness thanks to the drone of icy synths and grinding industrial textures, there’s this undeniable sense of groove and triumph here, exemplified in Hunter’s echoing and anthemic vocals at the tracks closure. Running through an entire spectrum of emotions and textures in the span four minutes, Galapagos is on the cutting edge of what pop music is capable of in 2019.
