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.
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.
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.
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.
Not only does Alexa Morgan have a beautifully smooth, soulful singing voice, but All Night Long has a really great sense of rhythm about it, and this comes through in everything all at once.
The vibe of the whole track works well in making certain you remember & recognise it later on. The ongoing feeling of possibility is powerful, it makes for a hugely compelling few minutes of audio.
The hook offers up a gentle & smooth melody – a beautifully soulful vocal line – whereas the rap verses present a much grittier, detailed exploration of the song’s underlying concept. The way these opposing sections are arranged is superb.
It’s always interesting when you come across a musical composition that seems to, in its own artistic way, represent its concept by means of every element involved. The song underlines a sense of emotional disconnect with every fibre of its being.
When the writing is genuine & thoughtful, and when the humanity of the performance is clear & captivating, all you really need is the song. That’s all you need with this release.
