The 90′s are back, yay! I’ve been anxious to hear the new No Doubt tunes since they’re produced by a favorite producer (and lover) of mine, Diplo. It’s great to hear new No Doubt music, especially after Gwen went off and did her solo Harajuku Girls thing, that sounds almost like they did back in the day. What’s interesting about the track is that it’s ska music, meaning there’s usually incorporation of a horn section/parts, however, they’ve been swapped out for electronic “horn” emphasis. “Settle Down” doubles as a pop song too, in a No Doubt/commercial radio play manner, but has a run time of 6:14. Of course there’s a radio edit of the track, but for a pop song, that’s a long time to keep a lot of ears engaged. Not like it’s a big deal for No Doubt, they’ve been in the music game for a minute and are keeping up with making the right moves (i.e. Diplo’s production). And not that it relates to the music in any way, but Gwen Stefani looks damn good at 42.
