The track kicks off with a Blondie-Esque overture with an 80s’ aura. Furthermore, the guitar riff soars up the echelon with catchy cadence ahead of a delightful vocal performance from Marina.

Energy Leaks From Every Corner

Also, the mixture of many sounds adds to the tracks already robust foundation; it is a creative new direction, and it paves the way forward for female alt-pop.
