Listen: New Version 4 Track – “Do It Now”

22 Jan

You may or may not recall that back in October, we shared the debut track from Version 4, “Photograph”. At the time, the band promised that follow up track “Do It Now” was on its way and lo and behold, here it is!

Unlike “Photograph”, which very gradually built up from an orchestral jazz influenced base, into slightly foreboding industrial electronica, “Do It Now” is much more upfront about its intentions. Those being, COME ON, GET MOVING! ENERGY IS GREAT! This is 8+ minutes of increasing, drum kit smashing, synth blasting intensity. Like a snowball picking up speed as it pelts down a hill, gathering in more snow (as well as beats, big hair, bigger shoulder pads and Duran Duran), going faster and faster until it becomes an unstoppable juggernaut ploughing through everything in its path until it ultimately crashes into a house or something and explodes everywhere. At least, that’s the PG analogy. The guys themselves clearly thought it was much more adult in its nature, as the inclusion of the unmistakably lusty breathing of a young lady partaking in coitus suggests.

This is a big tune, less cerebral than their debut perhaps but no less impressive. With its 80’s feel and determination to be played loud, “Do It Now” is a beast, and one that you’ll probably need at least three cans of Red Bull to keep up with.
