Sweden’s Oxen delivers a perky and poppy electro-infused rock sound on new track “Postpone.” Swiftly drifting vocals combine with a strong rhythmic flow and forcefully upbeat guitar progressions. The vocals come down at the 2:18 transition and offer some melodic depth before returning to the track’s bustling pace. Reluctantly-aware lyrics paired with a bubbly beat create a feeling of content resignation mixed with resilient hope.
