As an artist, MARKK offers up a notably characterful voice & performance style. This sort of RnB-influenced melody is not often presented by what appears as a fairly indie-rock-like leading voice, there’s a lot of grit & passion to the sound.
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.
As you make your way through the songs on this project, the colour, the concepts, the confusion – it all navigates proudly through deep thought, & it exercises a refusal to simply comply or feed into the rat race of modern life.
This concept of getting over it is so much easier said than done, so the set up of this song works brilliantly in representing the journey through dwelling & on into freedom.
The further you get, the better it sounds. Structurally there are many occasions when you really appreciate the unpredictability – the fitting freshness.
Chemical Refugee’s authentic presentation of hard-hitting, soulful electronic rock is the sort that satisfies in a refreshing & partly nostalgic way.
The music has a definite stamp of identity, the leading vocalist has the perfect rock-meets-EDM tone & performance style to deliver with weight.
As an artist, songwriter & producer, the 15th is undeniably creative & expressive. The originality & professionalism are sky high – a mighty combination.
