The song hits you as the sort of indie anthem that would have made waves not too long ago in the mainstream music world. Later on you get past that energy boost & vibrancy & you start to take in the concept more intently.
A brilliantly honest song that draws your affection with its lyrical approach to reality, to openness & to the inner turmoil we all feel from time to time. Dario Margeli has written from the heart while touching upon issues of the mind; it’s well balanced & it works.
The song actually comes through as accessible to any number of audiences – not limited to the specific struggle that created it. The ambiance offers a classic rock vibe with a contrastingly delicate leading vocal part. These work well together in this setting.
Sometimes a simple acoustic ambiance & a string of lyrics that matter or mean something are all that’s needed to make a song connect. If You’re Wrong, by artist & songwriter Richard James Grist, is an ideal example.
In addition to everything that simply works about this track, it’s important to point out how musically raw and real the release is. Bizkit’s incomparable skills as a musician, most distinctly on the saxophone, make for a phenomenal few moments.
Suggesting or hinting at the concept of freedom within art or music is very different to entirely encapsulating it. ‘Free’ is the absolute perfect example of a song embracing entirely the concept at its core & successfully passing that feeling on to its audience.
The music is so easy going, it creates the perfect rhythm & ambiance to calm an audience, and Milhe’s vocal performance excels throughout.
There’s a lot of space on this record, the vibe is light & atmospheric – laying bare certain ideas & really keeping your focus on the thoughts within, as well as allowing you that room & that time to consider & understand it all.
Fernweher as a songwriter takes on the essence of both poetry & musical creativity to paint these thoughtful soundscapes that surround you in a fairly dreamlike, hypnotic aura. The artist makes certain you know the concept, that this key idea is familiar & recognisable.
The music alone, throughout Kuru, is complex & ever-evolving. The detail is superb, the creativity is unstoppable. When you pair the music & the video, the result is superb.
Flawlessly combining the retro vibes of the 80s with the absolute ear-wormery of modern pop, Perfect Chair is a track you only need to hear once for it to leave its mark. A huge song, immediately satisfying & enjoyable from start to finish.
The wait for an appropriately entrancing video for this particular single makes so much sense once you’ve witnessed the final presentation. The scenery & shots within are offered up in a distinctly natural manner, which makes it connect all the more intensely.
