Entropical is a rock song. It features multiple voices singing in different manners, including a female voice and a deep male voice, implied to be sampled human voices. The song starts with the female voice singing mostly quietly, sometimes shouting, with the male voice rapping in between. During the chorus, the female voice gets slightly louder. After the chorus, the music tones down, reducing the volume and loops. It has a random chance of being played during online matches in Splatoon 2, and was added in Version 4.1.0 along with the other SashiMori song, Chopscrewey. It was first heard in the Version 4.0.0 trailer, and later a snippet was released, revealing the song's name. It can also be heard in Squid Beatz 2, with a maximum score of 194 and 311 in Normal and Hard modes, respectively. In Splatoon 3, this song can sometimes play in the Battle Lobby.
Entropical (Splatoon 2 Ver. 4 trailer)
The live version retains most of what is heard in-game. After the intro and the chorus it transitions synthesizer solo followed by some guitar strings. This goes back to chorus for a second time. After that, ending with an outro similar to one used in the Version 4.0.0 trailer.
|Then we have Entropical, a track featuring bewitching female vocals entwined in endless struggle with scratchy rap lyrics. While these vocals are all comprised of interconnected samples, they offer a different sound than could ever be produced by the vocal cords of sea creatures. Keep an ear out during battle for these two tracks once the next update goes live in early October!
- In the trailer for Version 4.0.0, a Splat Bomb is thrown at the same time as the chorus begins. This may or may not be related to the chorus sounding like the word "bomb" being sung.
- In-game, this song is not fully looped to fit better within two minutes and leave sixty seconds for Now or Never! in Turf War. This trait is shared with Sucker Punch and Wave Prism. It is fully looped in the album version.
'Entropical' is a portmanteau of 'entropy' and 'tropical'. This could refer to the degree of disorder or randomness caused by the sampled voice clips used to make the vocals of the track.
