Beautifully sung and played, Blue is a grown-up delight of a song. Tackling subject matter like this can often be interpreted as indulgent, worthy or mawkish, but Macaco just gets on with the job of putting up a tremendous piece of songwriting and presenting it in the right kind of way. This is going to connect with people.
Never an act to shy away from having a little fun when it comes to making music, United Duality’s latest single plays out like a short scene from a movie. The Spanish-inspired musicality offers a quickly entertaining sense of rhythm, then you get a series of lyrics – spoken dialogue & otherwise – and an unexpected structural progression that effectively places the composition in its own creative league entirely.
