Regina Spektor begins her newest track, “All The Rowboats”, with a massive electronic, almost industrial build and quickly drops into a sneaky, tip-toeing piano lead, overlapped by soft vocals and a pulsating beat. As the verse progresses, drums intensify and through the use of dreary keys and haunting melodies that move in a waltz-like formation, we start to wonder, “Is there anything Regina Spektor can’t do?” Well, presenting a piece of her new album with a song that doesn’t even have a distinguishable chorus, you bet we’re voting “no”. Don’t believe us? Wait ‘til the end of this horrifying single where the drums pound the song into final submission.
What We Saw From The Cheap Seats will be released May 12th, 2012.
