A review of the Speedy Ortiz song Death Note.

 

Following their album from last year, Foil Deer, Speedy Ortiz are back with a four track EP cleverly titled Foiled Again. This EP is compiled of two outtakes from Foil Deer and two remixes, hence the name, and though this mini-album might pale in comparison to their 2015 album that came out of that year as one of the best albums released, Foiled Again is a welcome addition to the band's collection and the first single "Death Note" is entirely pleasing.


“Death Note” is heavy and fraught with distortion and screeching guitars with a smooth foundation of cool bass. The pounding drums bring the main hook home again and again and frontwoman Sadie Dupuis' monotone soprano ties the whole package together with an unshakable 90's girl band bow.


Dupuis says Death Note is named after the anime bearing the same name (the premise of the show is how an evil supernatural notebook causes the death of anyone who's name is written inside). Dupuis explains, " The song is about writing through your depression as a way to get better, and how in that way a death note can be kind of love letter to yourself."
