Document “Hustle”

Document released a post-punk rock track at the end of October called “Hustle”. The impending doom of the digital age is displayed through crunchy guitars, boomy drums, and a deep cutting bass tone. Lead singer, Nir Ben Jacob delivers a lyric based on how technology has become a hindrance to human intimacy and that we’ve been consumed by our screens, but there’s nothing we can do about it! Who can live without their smartphones in this day and age? Not me! Document digs up a concept that is a nightmare for some and for others, it’s ignored. The music represents this gracefully with the use of dissonance and a gradual build throughout. The last few seconds of “Hustle” leaves you with a fuzzy pad that pans right to left then back almost disorienting the listener, but in my opinion, it was absolutely necessary.
