Small Black's "No One Wants it To Happen To You" is a spinning mass of blurring sound, mixing warbling synths with guitars and lead singer Josh Kolenik's carefully controlled voice. The song is high-energy and fast-paced, and, in Small Black's signature style, it is as pensive as it is catchy. The last minute blurs into magnificence, with echoes of Kolenik singing the title of the song reverberating through the background. Small Black's talent for creating dance music to cry to is as real as ever.
