Ideomotor’s The Gutter is a supersonic track that builds upon the framework of 1980s New Wave and emo from the oughts to create something that blends together disparate sounds and styles masterfully. A strong, assertive beat is the perfect counterpoint from the honeyed vocals. The production of The Gutter is strong enough to allow these elements to shine alone and as a cohesive entity. Allowing the vocals to take on a more melody-making role during the bridge between the first and second half of the single is precisely what is needed to give fans a nice boost. We’re excited to hear more from Ideomotor in the future.
