Molestando mi impaciencia [single] by Funes el Memorioso
The song shifts moods expertly and unexpectedly. As it opens, the lead singer sounds like he is trying to make someone understand his mental predicament in the most tactful way possible. His voice is mature and full-bodied. However, if you know Spanish or read the translated lyrics, you realize just how much resentment he’s holding back. “My impatience is not bought in bags, nor did I ever lose it,” he sings at one point, along with “Let everyone say that I am stubborn.” The song itself translates to a wonderfully snotty title as well: “Disturbing My Impatience.”
Accordingly, the track moves in sync with the vocalist’s thoughts. What starts off as rather mellow guitar, drums and bass soon become full-force behemoths to help channel his discontentment. The band even finds an opportunity to bring in some “ooh” vocals which add a good deal of redemption to the proceedings. It’s like everything is going wrong, but they still have the strength to summon up that moment of appreciation.
Even with its short runtime, “Molestando mi impaciencia” packs in a great deal of material. Best of all, it never feels like it’s suffocating itself or the listener with too much in one go. Instead, it keeps things nimble while also keeping them interesting. FUNES EL MEMORIOSO have created something of an indie rock microcosm with this one song, as they sound a hit like ARCADE FIRE, who have just announced a massive European tour. If there’s a complaint that can be levied against it, it’s simply that it ends too soon.
