JURASSIC PARK (1993) dir. Steven Spielberg
Fuzzy warbling bass and crisp 808s endow The Man Who’s compelling debut, Bet On You. This new project from Toronto, Canada was created by two cousins who were originally separated by more than two thousand miles. Several writing trips together convinced them they had settle down in one place and develop their sound. Out of that conviction comes this assured first single, a boundary pushing sonic formula that confounds genre classification with its flurry of sooty pop, gritty rock, and searing electronica. The Man Who is influenced by artists ranging form Bill Withers to the Beatles. They tell a dark love story on their first song. Bet On You’s bristling poignancy is powerfully palpable. It’s also interesting that they’ve chosen the moniker The Man Who and their debut single is named Bet On You. If you read both together, you get The Man Who Bet On You…. Bet On You can also be streamed off Soundcloud below.
