Download “Automatic

Let ‘Em Riot paints music with both broad electronica strokes and precise dots and loops. In “Automatic,” Alan Oakes uses this to create a sense of dread and apathy, hearkening back to a darker side of 80s synth pop, a la Soft Cell or Rockwell’s “Somebody’s Watching Me” without the silliness.

Indeed, the lyrics reflects a certain sense of despondency within Oakes. As a listener, everything within the song serves as a catharsis for the numb and disaffected. As that may be, however, it is certainly a beautiful catharsis of a song.
