“Scatter Your Millions” is a memorable track from Sleep Moscow, a Swedish act that impresses throughout their recent album A Wounded Moon. Their second single, the track is written by Petter Kindström and Arvid Hällagård (from popular stoner rock band Greenleaf). It’s a pleasantly evolving effort, growing from fairly straightforward beginnings into beautifully expansive rock. The vocal tone bears a likeness to David Byrne in the perkier verses, where a buzzing bass and dashes of guitar accompany. The track reaches moody heights around 01:37, when lounge-y keys accompany suaver vocals, followed by a distorted synth that adds an ominous yet fun feel. The final minute is captivating and guitar-heavy, with a tonal likeness to The Flaming Lips’ Embryonic.
“This is the first chapter of a concept album that’s about being lost and longed for at the same time,” Petter explains.
