Track Of The Day: HOST – ‘Trainwreck’

A contradiction in sound and content; synthpop artist HOST‘s latest single ‘Trainwreck’ is a catchy, upbeat affair despite its context being rooted in self-deprecation. The Irish artist released her EP Adolescent Content at the start of 2019, and followed it up with single ‘Crying for Days’ before sharing this new track, combining a pessimistic outlook with optimistic, dreamy sounds.

HOST’s strong vocals float above echoing beats and shimmering synth textures on ‘Trainwreck’, as she sings of “barely hanging on” to a healthy perspective. It’s HOST’s ability to dance with her demons that makes her music such a catchy slice of catharsis, providing momentary relief for listeners who might be feeling a little like the track’s title.
