Los Angeles-based Hamster has been producing pop and EDM tracks for rising stars in the LA scene over the last few years. In August 2016, he started releasing tracks under his own moniker, Hamster. The name is inspired by the illusion of moving forward rapidly only to discover you’re stuck in the proverbial hamster wheel.
This is a great song and performance. The melody is strong and tuneful. The singer has an attractive vocal tone, and puts real feeling into the lyrics. The lyrics are interesting and meaningful with some punchy phrases. Instrumentally, the song has a rich, full accompaniment that complements the vocal track perfectly. Great guitar solo too, although I think a grittier tone would suit the dark mood of the song better.
The performance quality is high throughout, both vocally and instrumentally. Overall, the song is distinctive and original, and I think it has strong commercial potential.
