Hello everyone! My name is Francis Maria and welcome to Theoretical Armchairs. From here on in, I will be writing about music and art with the occasional foray into matters of a more introspective nature. This journal will (at least initially) deal with subjects within my periphery,…

“We find refuge in the creation of songs. We don’t have a genre in mind. Music is fluid.” - Game Theory
A band that originated from the bowels of UP Diliman (and the acclaimed organization UP Music Circle), Game Theory delivers a tasteful offering to the local independent scene with their latest release “Game Over.”
With the forgery of lush, diverse sounds such as pop punk and alternative (and a little pinch of metal from here and there), what comes out is a beautiful blend of an intelligently crafted EP which deserves attention and respect in the local indie route.
With impressive guitar work and catchy poppish passages, the EP has quite a dancy mood to it. Could still use a little more tightness in terms of song writing and overall melody though, to rid of some cliche’-ish feel and just so to make the song’s meanings more apparent.
The bass lines are quite good too, and has its moments notably the first track A Desperate Kind of Happiness. Guitar work and progression stands out the most and is the most consistent on the whole EP, earning itself some wait-worthy moments especially in tracks Breaking Addictions and Super Collosal.
Super Collosal and A Desperate Kind of Hapiness would be two of my personal favorites in this release.
The EP ends with a soothing electronic remix of the track Game is Over which might be quite too sketchy on the start for many, but would transition to an eargasmic glitchy tune — definitely the perfect soundtrack while on those long commutes from and back home.
Ah basta… matamis! Worth the try and listen. Cheers!

Verdict: 3.8 out of 5
