Mini Mansions latest track ‘Vertigo‘ is a mini masterpiece, aided by the tongue-twisting vocals of Alex Turner. Having recently performed at Tom Rowley’s wedding, I’m beginning to wonder if he might also be available for birthdays and bar mitzvahs too.
Los Angeles trio, Mini Mansions, are no stranger to the Arctic Monkeys frontman, having performed ‘Vertigo’ live multiple times across their American tour in 2014. However, we needn’t squint at grainy, motion-sickness-inducing YouTube videos any longer: ‘Vertigo‘ has been immortalised in all its psych-pop glory.
Opening with eerie synth and spooky piano, electronic percussion sets the pace for this undeniably danceable affair. The chorus chugs along with playful falsetto vocals and a bassline that’s somewhat hypnotic in its execution.
Alex Turner’s effortlessly sleek vocal performance is the icing on the cake of an already ambitious record: as he whispers “run for cover”, it’s hard not to get an immediate chill down your spine. It’s a collaboration that just works.
