8/10 review from Alt77.com for our single “1664”

The Confusions – 1664

Genre: Punk, New wave, Indie Rock

Rock music has found perfection a few times over. There are enough versions of perfect sounds, crafted in just the right manner for modern audiences to listen in awe and young artists to want to gift the world something equally as alluring. 

It’s no mean feat either, and rock musicians didn’t arrive at this state of grace by coincidence. Any scholar of rock history will tell you that there is plenty of garbage that you need to sort through in order to reach something worthwhile. Rock’s many permeations and its continued metamorphosis are what have allowed these remarkable forms of music to exist. 

The Confusions have witnessed this excellence of human expression and were ready to carve it apart and reassemble it into their language in 1664. The tune is really a complex strategy that aims to marry punk, 60s rock, and even modern indie. All of these forms achieved an incredible sort of tightrope balance. Now, it’s The Confusions’ turn to dare to reach something of similar effortless beauty.

“1664” the video

“1664” is 2 minutes and 20 seconds of rough but happy pop-punk-indie.
“We wrote the idea of the song on just an acoustic guitar but the song transformed to a pop-punk anthem in the studio.
Lyric is about growing up together with a friend and then drifting apart, with new ideals and directions in life.”

1664 (lyrics)
I heard you singing all those songs when you were younger
you sang it with freedom in your heart
We were kids and we took care of one another
then something fell apart

You got angry with the world and all the others
it was always someone else’s fault
You found a new direction like your father
you found a brand new start

Don’t step into the reservoir
Don’t walk that way
Don’t step into the reservoir
You got to walk away Away, away, away, away

You started searching for your answers
where only the bitter people walk
Swinging and complaining at your friends
friendships fell apart

And everybody’s trying to be nice
while strangers feeding you with lies
We saw you turn into some kind of monster
we saw you fall apart

Don’t step into the reservoir
Don’t walk that way
Don’t step into the reservoir
You got to walk away Away, away, away, away
Don’t step into the reservoir
Don’t walk that way
Don’t step into the reservoir
You got to walk away Away, away, away, away
