The umbrella of “pop” music will never close. It would literally be impossible. No matter what the sound of “pop” is tomorrow or 20 years from now, it’s still going to win the ears of fans. This is certainly no exception once Danger Mouse puts his touch to an upcoming artist or group. In this case, it’s Electric Guest. The duo has created their version of “modernized funk” (aka pop) and within the first 15 seconds of hearing This Head I Hold, you’ll immediately want to add it to your latest playlist. It would be impossible not to. This track has everything you could want from a song, especially a hook.
Random fact: Asa Taccone, the duo’s front man, is actually the brother of Jorma Taccone of Lonely Island/SNL.
