Death Grips - "On GP"
It seems obvious in retrospect, but Death Grips are obsessed with the notion of death. For one, it's in their name. But the obsession filters into their being: the band is in a continuous cycle of birth and death, destroying themselves a few times over to be where they are.
"On GP" is all about the notion of death, and while to untrained ears it might just be more of the same, it still acts as an exciting rebirth for one of the world's craziest bands. After pretending to break-up, adding guitars into the mix might seem a little underwhelming a change. But alongside Stefan's introspective and bleak lyrics, it becomes their most human song yet.—Joe Price
