“Cookie Cutter” is a gripping rocker from UK act Pave The Jungle, following up their January debut “Jelly.” Thanks to the exhilarating vocal tone and escalating section approaching the two-minute mark, I’m reminded fondly of early material from legendary duo Sparks. Brash while still being thoroughly melodic, “Cookie Cutter” begins with halted guitars and drawing vocals. The chorus — “stop the assembly line,” — is more ceaseless in comparison, providing an effective contrast. “Cookie Cutter” is fun from start to finish.
The band speaks more about this engaging track below:
“It’s definitely one of our favourites to play live. We decided it’d work well as a follow-up to Jelly, as that track was quite down-tempo and brooding. Anyone who’s seen us live has (hopefully) realised we place an emphasis on striking the right balance between energies, and that’s the dynamic we want to take forward into the music we release.”
“Cookie Cutter” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of March 2020’ Spotify playlist.
The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Rock.
