An infectiously pulsing pop success from Los Angeles native Jeremy Amato, “Hatemail” captures the artist’s genre-hopping enthusiasm. Murky vocals and palpitating synths craft a mellow enticement initially. “‘Cause I don’t really give a fuck,” Amato lets out during the ensuing escalation, assuming a dance-friendly form as the synths burst with enthusiasm. The vocal passion and coinciding rises remind fondly of Avey Tare.
The track balances lusher, spacey pop contemplation seamlessly with the invigorated hook, making for a ceaseless entrancement. A standout production with melodically infectious results, “Hatemail” is a stellar showing from Jeremy Amato.
Amato’s releases thus far have embraced a synesthesia-oriented “Yellow” theme. Each subsequent release will explore this concept further, “until all of the colors of the rainbow are complete.” The culminating, upcoming EP is entitled Yellow.
