Reviews

Pumped Up Kicks dibuka dengan beat drum yang chilling dan juga betotan bas yang heavy. Suara Mark Foster, sebagai vokalis Foster The Poeple, pun mengawali part vokal lagu. Vokal Foster yang memang husky membuat track indie pop ini terasa begitu santai dan catchy. Ditambah dengan handclapping yang terus membahana di sepanjang reff,memang sound yang mereka tampilkan di lagu ini tidak begitu clear malah cenderung lo-fi dan mengawang. Namun, itulah salah satu keunikan track ini. Soal kadar adiksi track ini jangan ditanya, sound yang cukup retro dengan ketukan yang chilling menjadi daya tarik lagu ini. “Pumped Up Kicks” sendiri membuat kita bisa berdansa santai dan cocok juga untuk menjadi soundtrack yang cheerful di waktu luang sambil menikmati minuman dingin untuk menyegarkan suasana.

Memang banyak yang mengaitkan track ini dengan “Young Folks” dari Peter Bjorn & John dimana hampir seluruh esensi lagu itu muncul di “Pumped Up Kicks” apa lagi sang vokalis Mark Foster mempunyai cengkok yang sama dengan vokalis Peter Bjorn & John yaitu Peter Moren. Tapi perbedaannya adalah track ini lebih memajukan kesan ekletik,elektrik dan chilling dibanding dengan “Young Folks” yang lebih upbeat dan rapat. Track ini berjalan longgar dengan adanya sedikit kadar disco membuat track ini makin catchy dan wajar saja jika dunia sudah mulai menaruh perhatian pada lagu dan band ini, suara siulannya juga menguatkan titel “Soundtrack Musim Panas” oleh berbagai media.

Foster The People jika dihitung sebagai sebuah debutan memang mempunyai magnet yang cukup kuat yaitu dengan single yang satu ini yang mengambil ranah indie pop dengan sentuhan elektronik, retro, disko dan juga indie pop. Single ini menyenangkan dan mudah-mudahan dapat diterima baik di kalangan pecinta musik internasional khususnya di Indonesia.

Lirik Lagu

[Verse One]
Robert’s got a quick hand.
He’ll look around the room, he won’t tell you his plan.
He’s got a rolled cigarette, hanging out his mouth he’s a cowboy kid.
Yeah he found a six shooter gun.
In his dads closet hidden in a box of fun things, and I don’t even know what.
But he’s coming for you, yeah he’s coming for you.

[Chorus]
“All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
You better run, better run, outrun my gun…”
“All the other kids with the pumped up kicks,
You better run, better run, faster than my bullet.”
“All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
You better run, better run, outrun my gun…”
“All the other kids with the pumped up kicks,
You better run, better run, faster than my bullet.”

[Verse Two]
Daddy works a long day.
He be coming home late, yeah he’s coming home late.
And he’s bringing me a surprise.
‘Cause dinner’s in the kitchen and it’s packed in ice.
I’ve waited for a long time.
Yeah the sleight of hand is now a quick pull trigger,
I reason with my cigarette,
And say your hair’s on fire, you must have lost your wits, yeah.

[Chorus]
“All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
You better run, better run, outrun my gun…”
“All the other kids with the pumped up kicks,
You better run, better run, faster than my bullet.”
“All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
You better run, better run, outrun my gun…”
“All the other kids with the pumped up kicks,
You better run, better run, faster than my bullet.”

[whistling]

[Chorus]
“All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
You better run, better run, outrun my gun…”
“All the other kids with the pumped up kicks,
You better run, better run, faster than my bullet.”
“All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
You better run, better run, outrun my gun…”
“All the other kids with the pumped up kicks,
You better run, better run, faster than my bullet.”

“All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
You better run, better run, outrun my gun…”
“All the other kids with the pumped up kicks,
You better run, better run, faster than my bullet.”
“All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
You better run, better run, outrun my gun…”
“All the other kids with the pumped up kicks,
You better run, better run, faster than my bullet.”

“All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
You better run, better run, outrun my gun…”
“All the other kids with the pumped up kicks,
You better run, better run, faster than my bullet.”
“All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
You better run, better run, outrun my gun…”
“All the other kids with the pumped up kicks,
You better run, better run, faster than my bullet.”
