The song’s latter half builds up brilliantly, the energy multiples and sweeps you away in the process – making for that perfect musical escapism and providing the necessary energy levels to fill the room and motivate even the tiredest of listeners.
JRS3 has done well to create something refreshing with this. Instrumentally it works a treat, taking the hip hop sound somewhere new & creative, though with a dash of retro synths & electric guitar – the past & the present meet, along with several genres. An easily memorable & quite addictive hit.
P.A.T is no stranger to self-belief & self-empowerment – his name is an acronym for Potential, Ambition, Talented, and this track speaks volumes for that sentiment & holds close to the creative’s own truth.
A producer creating those unbelievably hard-hitting beats that so often seem to have been lost or left behind in a cloud of memories.There’s something subtly characterful about the sound. It’s hard to pinpoint, but it’s there – this meeting between yesterday & tomorrow.
The artist’s playing, his musicianship, his skills in songwriting & composition – it all feels so true to the moment, and it’s topped of gorgeously by a warm & wonderful leading voice.
Countdown To Sunset is an artist who deals with a number of human emotions in a way that lays bare the truth of each thought or feeling – highlighting, in an authentically pure manner, the imperfections that make up a life.
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.
Consider the fact that music is, for most of us, the absolute God of escapism. This soundtrack encapsulates that concept & provides the relevant experience.
The connection between singer & song starts to come second to the one between the listener & the song, and that’s a powerful thing & a wonderful gift.
