Of course, it’s even better when our favorite tunes contain small quirks of horror. Eclectic piano pop maestro Kyle Greer’s Skeleton Key EP is one such work.
Sprinkled with small tastes of gothic and the macabre, this work is layered with cascading musical variations on such propulsive tunes as Loverboy for Louisa and Dogkiller. Meanwhile, Little Arsonist would fit perfectly in a comedy about dysfunctional serial killers or coming out of the speakers of a party van in the latest retro-slasher.
Reaching dramatically, into the highest levels of his vocal register, Greer’s penultimate moment here is the fun, sweetly beautiful Mother. A ballad song in the voice of Norman Bates, this is musical theatre and arch comedy at its finest. Let’s hope Greer has a whole Psycho musical up his white and black colored sleeves.
