Viceroy Featuring K. Flay – Back At The Start


Only good things could come from a K. Flay feature on one of California-based Viceroy‘s tracks. This week’s release of Back At The Start proves this confidence.

K. Flay continues her classic themes – drug use and over-dependent relationships – in her vocals, which grace the song for its entirety. Viceroy frames the lyrics well into his 3 and a half minute composition, which manages to capture your attention for the full ride. This apparent momentum thrives throughout the song on account of his characteristic array of simple-yet-satisfying keyboard chords and – most notably – his saxophone solos, which endow the track with unique character and makes the rest of the song just as powerful as its beginning. Also in characteristic Viceroy fashion, short instrumental breaks build dramatic tension between K. Flay’s verses, give her lines more attention and highlight their importance.
