about

Do not be misled by the bouncing beat and computer-altered voices of the downtempo debut of New York City’s latest electronic dance music producer Fits of Genius (Brian O’Donnell). The current track, “Say”, is a melancholic cautionary tale. Says O’Donnell, “How many times have you said something in haste you didn’t mean? I know I have many times and this song started out as a reminder to think about the power of our words.”

“Say” is the first release by O’Donnell under the moniker Fits of Genius. The track is a brilliant introduction to the Fits of Genius credo, “If you can listen to the same song on different days and have completely different experiences, then I have done my job,” boasts O’Donnell. The debut album features songs with sparse lyrical arrangements that break traditional song structure -- allowing the listener to fill in the gaps.

“Say” is anchored with a heavy beat and bass that can easily fit into a hip hop track. It has been dusted with ambient synth embellishments and arpeggios with a vocal delivery that blends O’Donnell’s own voice with a downtuned robotic version.

O’Donnell ascends from the world of writing, producing and engineering pop music. As Fits of Genius he is breaking all the rules. His inspiration reigns from artists such as Depeche Mode, The Pet Shop Boys and Peter Gabriel.

Say

Be careful what you say
Be careful what you say
Before you walk away
