These components create a dreamy, ethereal backdrop against which the vocals can float. Throughout the song, the inclusion of background vocals that carry an “orchestra-like” vibe brings richness to the track. “LSD.TV” successfully immerses us in a musical journey allowing us to escape from the everyday hustle and bustle.
Overall, “LSD.TV” by WAXX! is a thought-provoking and musically engaging song that effectively conveys its message about the impact of media saturation in our lives. The fusion of fuzzy psychedelic rock with ethereal elements makes for an intriguing listening experience.
