This is really hypnotic. Still sounds like an album track to me.

But maybe she does not release the strongest song as the first "single" as she did it with Prism neither.

Probably this won't go to no #1. Ed Sheeran is too strong right now.

Hypnotic for sure, the way the chorus repeats with a barely-there chord change. It's almost entrancing, the way the production works, and at the end she proves it by singing "it goes on and on and on and on," pretty ingenious pop song crafting with this track. I think it's a very strong lead single with a statement, catchy hook, and memorable lyrics. I can see it going #1.

It's released in a time where the political background could play a big part in gaining radio airplay for democrats, at least that's how critics perceive this. This is a top 10 easily, a proper comeback.

Can there be a version without that bridge though?

Without Bonnie, Luke, and Cirkut, Katy's not the same.

Interesting chord progression. There may be no other song in mainstream pop history with this progression. I know it's not too spectacular but yet quite rare.

She just posted a new snippet to her Instagram story.

What's happening with the time signature in the first part of the pre/chorus?
Highly cool, but can't figure it out yet by counting......it doesn't stay in 4/4 time in first couple of bars .

I love this song! I gave it an 8 for now.

The beginnings of the verses remind me of The Carpenters "We've Only Just Begun".

I also love the lyric video to Chained.

I like the track a lot more than the topline and the lyrics.
Too soft when it could have been edgier.

What I like the most, is that it's different from what's popular right now.
And I love the risks.

lol yeah
Try counting in 4/4 time out loud to it, friend. If you got that far in arithmetic.
PS....if you EVER get one of your "productions" released & get a review like this one by my team, let us know. Until then, stfu. http://www.scandipop.co.uk/song-matilda-lundberg-fear/

@george_e: Please mind your language. There is enough hatred in this world, let's keep this place her constructive and happy. It's probably in Max spirit.
And I liked it..

I will .....but "hatred"??? Please. Almost as overused word as "racist". And you don't think Max gets mad and swears?
