Goosebump’s ‘She Don’t Say Goodbye’ is some artsy, spacey indie rock. Neil Rankin, one of the core songwriters, said this tune is, “a meditation on saying goodbye to someone despite them being right in front of you and them not really saying anything. A light bit of disco for you to groove to.” These guys “have been involved in the Toronto avant pop scene for years,” but the new self-titled album is supposed to, “highlight the duo’s individual growth and the way they’ve grown closer together as collaborators.” The funky, bass-heavy groove is deeply reminiscent of The Talking Heads. Behind that, some haunting keys and brassy horns give the tune a B horror movie sense. The layers of irony seem to run deep here, yet somehow these guys come out with an amusing, deeply entertaining artistic achievement without taking themselves too seriously. Goosebump has a lot to offer. Check out ‘She Don’t Say Goodbye’ below!
