The structure of Max Tundra's new single 'Lysine' appears to be of the utmost simplicity. Sunny-day synth stabs maintain a syncopated three-note pattern almost constantly throughout the song, while sweet daytime-radio female vocals (courtesy of his sister Becky) deliver a witty tribute to the benefits of the eponymous amino acid. It is testament to the subtlety of Ben Jacobs; composer, producer and instrumentalist behind this apparently straightforward pop song, that only on repeated listens highly complex and unconventional elements emerge.
