Say Hi “Oohs & Ahs” – good 'ol guitar strums & drum rumbling blend VERY nicely with droning synth, deep organ work and confident yet soft male vox. I recommend it! Eric Elbogen is the mastermind behind Say Hi and plays most of the instruments himself, giving each musical element individual attention and TLC. The result is well-layered, rich music that pairs up with some kooky lyricism. NO FCCS Detected Try 3, 1, 7,4
1) * sassy bassline, great spacey guitar; big west feel; lyrics “every boy in town is pretty sure that he deserves to lay her”
2) * upbeat; gives his vox a test & nails it in the epic chorus line
3) ** cd single; love the horns & the badass vibe; about a vixen in a yellow tee
4) * slower, spacey guitar; intimate vocals, catchy chorus “I’ll feel better when the winter’s gone”
5) creeping guitar lays under upbeat drums; feels like a sneaky car chase “Get Em”
6) slow, soft guitar strums; sublime synth; nice falsetto
7) *clap it out! wavering synth; drumming with conviction, electric guitar
8) slower, deep organ chords w/ confident horns – only 1:38 SHORT!
9) * fluttering percussion, breathy acoustic strumming, violin plucking; melancholy
10) creates a layering of 3 guitar/bass lines; all a different feel but work together; synth and drums eventually come in and add sass
