*** I think if you took out the snare drums, productionwise from the start it wouldn't sound too out of place on say "Nightswim". For the verses anyway.
For this song I think Timomatic was inspired by either Usher or Guy Sebastian. Both had their odes to the 'dayum girl' reaction to seeing a girl at a location. I do wonder if perhaps it's the wrong way to go about though, after all, love should stretch beyond just a physical reaction, you should get to know the girl more before you just to any conclusions. If she sees your head explode literally, she'll probably try to avoid you. I assume Timomatic is speaking figuratively, but nonetheless, I'm sure being a gawkish guy going 'WOAH-OH-OH' is just going to make her try to avoid you anyhow.
Perhaps Timomatic should stick to complimenting her booty like pow-pow-pow, in my opinion.
*** "If I offend you, I'm sorry" - I like this compassionate side to Timomatic! And unlike when Akon's efforts to respectfully describe the girl of his desire proved rather useless by concluding with the notably uncultured "damn you's a sexy bitch", Timomatic keeps his signature classiness high, and it's hard to argue that his reasoning of her having the sexiest body (of every girl/person[/animal??] ever, assumably) is any less than justified - and if not, I'm sure this girl he's after will sympathise with this mental disorder that exploded his mind and his subsequent worries. Very commendable work there Tim, and I'm sure she or anyone else you fancy will be all over you after hearing this song!
Now onto the music itself. "Explode" really showcases his diversity with the R&B midtempo production. The chorus takes me back to R&B numbers of 2007-2009 especially Jessica Mauboy's debut, it was really a bold move of him to put out an R&B record at a time when R&B was less than favourable in the mainstream, and honestly I wouldn't be surprised if "Explode" reintroduced plenty of fans around the world to the genre's beauty. Sadly it appears that Mauboy isn't as on point with music trends as Matty is, as she really could have used this song's exposure to go back to her R&B roots instead of chasing the fluffy dance-pop that the public got over years ago. Thankfully we still have Tim to remind us of the good in Aussie pop. 3.5*
