Pogo’s ‘The Trouble’ is a Musical Rabbit Hole of Downtempo Disney Nostalgia

Welcome to Memory Lane, Chill-ville, U.S.A.
Population: Your earholes

With its ethereal tones, downtempo beats and Disney movie melodies, the latest track from Australian music producer Nick Bertke a/k/a Pogo is a warm, musical bath of dreamy nostalgia that you will want to soak in all goddamned day.

Like many of Pogo’s other songs, “The Trouble” seamlessly sequences mellifluous riffs with samples from mouse-house favorites like Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, Mary Poppins, and The Little Mermaid. Non Disney fans may cringe at the idea, but rest assured, Pogo artfully manages to be wistful and whimsical without being too twee.

Take our “very good advice” and have a listen. Are you curiouser and curiouser to see what rabbit hole Pogo will take us down next?
