The sound is big, leaning partly towards the distorted world of indie rock, partly towards a more electronic, even reggae influenced edge.
Every element assists the music & emotion as they evolve. The voice rises in passion, the instrumentation intensifies, the lyrics become upfront & direct.
The simplicity works really well, the production has a retro crackle about it that assists in building those classic vibes & the melody hits with impact.
The strength of this uniting of elements drives the song. The hook lingers in your mind long after listening & there’s a definite sense of character.
Fusing a thick & distorted musical backdrop with an exotic, delicately powerful leading vocal melody, the song surrounds you in atmospheric ambiance.
The artist’s voice is the thing that will grab you, partly the tone & performance style, partly the unexpected lyricism & unique story telling.
The production shows itself to be well crafted towards the latter half of the song, and the whole thing becomes notably familiar the further along you get.
The production is on par with the best, the songwriting & performances add that necessary touch of humanity to really bring it into a world of its own.
