Teeth (Cyanides) by Sebastian Clarin: Review
In his second single, Teeth (Cyanides), Swedish singer Sebastian Clarin deftly blends playful electro pop with synth cyanides. He’s a man of ecstatic taste in lyrical imagination, able to convey pompous ambiguity through his art.
The electronic number may have a shady beginning, but it ultimately emerges gleaming brilliant and strong. There is an immense and sweeping piece based on the subtle descent of a throbbing dance beat. The beginning is confusing, as it is strong, eclectic, and futuristic all at once. Today’s culture has a lot in common with that of the ’80s. There can be no doubt that the throne has been surrendered. Clarin has a deliberate and quiet voice. His prophetic and cutting words play off the synths’ blossoming gloss nicely. As the song continues, it develops into a vast, ethereal environment complete with all the pads and melodic effects one could wish for. The place where night becomes day and ecstasy becomes destructive, where passions of both hate and lust fuel sexual activity. The experience of listening to this is, to put it nicely, uplifting and stimulating. The powerful bassline and Clarin’s lilting vocals create an entrancing trance tune that will hold your attention and curiosity throughout.
The chorus is where the song really begins to take off, as the song’s melody is fully unveiled and the production’s opulence is fully revealed to the listener. In his poetry, Clarin expresses a desire for his listeners to feel bewildered by his delivery. There is a tension between the song’s vivid and unique points of view.
