McCall’s The Unmapped Man has a driving piano / drum dynamic that allows Tris’s dreamy vocals to shine. A taut 3:30 in run time, McCall’s latest easily refreshes the lo-fit alt rock of the mid-1990s with just the right amount of emotive guitar work. A rich narrative is laid down during The Unmapped Man that reads as richly as a Pynchon novel. The keys that join themselves to Tris’s vocals immediately before the chorus act as the glue that unite the instrumental and lyrical sides of the track.The distinct sections of the song ensure that fans will continue to become invigorated by the composition even multiple plays in.
We covered Tris’s Conspiracy Theory back in 2018.
