Gospel instrumentation, retro influences, a breezy don’t-care tone and a hilarious animated video: these may just be the ingredients needed to create the perfect ode to a romance with a preacher’s daughter. On a technical level, Alex Parvenu’s “It Wasn’t Me” nears perfection, its beat and chord progression moving at just the right pace for the context of the sound. The result is a carefree little ditty that’s somehow manages to have a timeless appeal. And as mentioned earlier, the comedic video is excellent, tying up the lyrics to a sense of real mischief.
