Mike O'Neill :: "Henry"

Playful drums and friscalating backing vocals lay the groundwork for Mike O'Neill's latest single, "Henry". The chorus is empty and full at once, layers upon layers of woozy "doos" acting as the hook in place of the hook that isn't totally there. Replay, given "Henry" is only two-and-half minutes long, proves a satisfying ride, lolling down the back of a simple piano progression and the sweetest little melodies you'll hear today. For the Wes Anderson movie appropriated to personal aesthetic experience, the tweed jacket worn with a straight face, "Henry" pulses up and down with a motion all its own and a sepia filter that doesn't feel a bit dishonest.
