The pop song tackles the subject of anxiety and self defeating thoughts. It builds up to a punchy dance chorus leading to a catchy post-chorus with robotic modified vocals reminiscent of late 90’s pop bands like “Daft Punk”.
The contrast between the worrisome lyrics and the upbeat dance feel come to serve the band’s mantra: “Dance to forget”.
Police Voleur are a Lebanese electro pop band formed by Scarlett Saad and Kristian Abouanni in March 2020 during Lockdown.
It was very clear to the duet that this “Time Out” imposed by “Covid-19” might be their only chance to finally work on their own music, now that they have no distractions. And just like that, “Police Voleur” was born, in the heart of a pandemic, not only as a diversion or a survival tool, but also as a lifelong dream coming true.
The band’s sound is alternative dream-pop inspired, a mix of western music and Lebanese lyrics. Although their esthetic is quite playful, the band’s songs range from very mellow to super fun and upbeat. Just like playing as children; There’s happiness, excitement, anger and dispute.. But if it isn’t fun, why play in the first place?
