“Flat Packing Anger Management” is for anyone who has ever spent the weekend helping
their significant other build something ( like a bed-frame) that came flat in a box with a list of complicated instructions (put peg into slot A) and small tools ( an Allen key). Featuring both male and female vocals, this duo ( Matt Tiller and Diana Vickers) manages to keep deadpan expressions while they sing about the aggravating pitfalls of do-it-yourself furniture. Conveying stereotypical couple dynamics with lines like, Diana: Grab your tool and let’s make this bed. Forever we can rest our weary heads. Matt: And sometimes we’ll have sex,” this song is extremely entertaining. "Section A to Section C this isn't how I dreampt my life would be." Matt Tiller is has a subtle style that will please those who appreciate sophisticated wit. This is not slap-stick, crude, or roar-out-loud comedy, it is comedy that gently pokes fun at the mundane and trivial parts of our day to day lives.
Musically, "Flat Packing Anger Management' starts off with four bars of kick drum and rim shots ( almost sounds like building) until the full instrumentation comes in with guitar, bass and a descending bell line. The sound is indie-pop-rock with a feel good vibe. It is simple, yet well done with a good, solid mix and professional sound. Both vocalists blend together extremely well, creating a lulling tone any ears can enjoy.
