Dirty Chime – “Fifty One Fifty”

The “she don’t even know,” vocal repetition proves effective with various vocal layers and twinkling synths. “Fifty One Fifty” is a memorable pop track from Los Angeles-based artist Dirty Chime. The track’s title refers to “the California law code for the temporary, involuntary psychiatric commitment of individuals who present a danger to themselves or others due to signs of mental illness.” The bouncy bridge just past the two-minute mark amps things up, with more present rhythmic presence and clanging synth-laden feel. “Fifty One Fifty” is an infectious pop success from Dirty Chime.
