  • Unfortunately, this is a cover so I can’t really focus on the songwriting of the track, but it certainly contains more mature songwriting and more developed than the typical sound on this record
  • In fact, this is probably the best instance of the balance between these two aspects of the song
  • Although this track is definitely on the more energetic side, I would still say that if you a fan of some of the calmer tracks on this record, I’d still give this song a chance because it demonstrates a more developed songwriting which was present on those tracks

      Hey Vanessa is a song by Sledding With Tigers and is the final track on their debut album, No Randy No. I’ll mention right from the start that Hey Vanessa is a cover of an Elliot Smith song.

      Opening up with a quick vocal delivery, Sledding With Tigers take advantage of an effect which is basically a fade-in which does a nice job of introducing the track and contrasting the opening sound from the typical


      sound on the record.

      Unfortunately, this is a cover so I can’t really focus on the songwriting of the track, but it certainly contains more mature songwriting and more developed than the typical sound on this record.

      Nevertheless, this song is a cover so this is beside the point.

      However, I will say that Sledding With Tigers does a very good job of balancing the focus between vocals and music on this track.

      In fact,


      • this is probably the best instance of the balance between these two aspects of the song.

        In all the other tracks on this record, I personally found that the focus was primarily on the vocals; though some songs such as Sunshine certainly had interesting musical sections.

        On the other hand, I find that the vocals and instruments really complement each other nicely on Hey Vanessa.

        Even though this is a cover, it still closes the

        album on an optimistic note in that I’d be curious to hear Sledding With Tigers really pursue this more balanced and developed style of songwriting on the next record.

        Although this track is definitely on the more energetic side, I would still say that if you a fan of some of the calmer tracks on this record, I’d still give this song a chance because it demonstrates a more developed songwriting which was present on those tracks.
