If you happen to be employed (if that’s even the word) as a pirate, you know that when someone threatens you with images of Davey Jones’ Locker, it’s essentially shop-talk for sending you to a watery grave. You’d have to be a real oddball to go searching for that metaphorical locker – an oddball like Hollyweerd member Go Dreamer. This newly-leaked EP inclusion finds the Crazy Girlz singer/emcee once again caught up in a perilous, potentially life-threatening romance. Like Clockwork handles production duties, crafting a genre-pureeing guitar/sample backdrop for verses brimming with nautical nonsense (“Land ho, you ho, I think it’s time for you to walk the plank…). As usual, the artist doesn’t confine himself to rhyming; on the contrary, he showcases his skills as a pop-rock vocalist on the driving chorus, which comes complete with a couple disorienting key changes. So, arrrr you enjoying this left-of-center banger? If so, keep it locked for release details on Dreamer’s forthcoming Animals and Machines EP, currently scheduled to drop in summer 2011.
