The Statuettes’ striking new track, “Keep Yourself”, features an infectious Intro that chugs along with melodic precision, as the proper addition of the twangy guitar line around 00:30 helps transition to the bridge at 00:48, following nicely into some excellent melodic maneuvers, like the cohesive transition back to the initial intro around 01:18. The “you’ve been waiting for the longest time” bridge/chorus a nice moment that reminds me of Weezer, circa their Green Album; this one has similarly concise vocals and crunchy yet melodically warm guitar rhythms. Additionally, the distortion-friendly interlude around 02:31 a great choice to keep the structure from becoming overly conventional and stale. “Keep Yourself Awake” is a very fun rocker/power-popper that I’m really enjoying from this Salt Lake City-based project.
