Musically, this is as hyper-charged as it gets. The opening beat harkens back to the sounds of Rockabilly before setting more into the realm of The Strokes type inspiration. His guitar riffs are energetic and upbeat, and his vocal range has that feel good tinge to it. Especially when he ends a verse with a higher note. Mike Stoyanov has really tapped into the cultural zeitgeist with this one.
