Indie-pop intimacy and colourful, keys-led sound-design unite for this contemporary take on uncertainty in love.
Acroba leads with a likable, accessible voice. The music rains down in an optimistic and bright fashion, allowing the voice to present these long-form contemplations in an almost freestyle manner.
The indie authenticity stands tall, the ideas pouring through like a diary entry, yet still proving ultimately satisfying in the way things progress and resolve.
Increasingly catchy, with a welcomed sense of rising energy that soon prompts you to move a little more – all the while singing along to the fall of the hook.
Featuring a well-placed middle 8 of acoustic softness, right before the melody drops to lower, almost melancholic plains, Voicemail makes fine use of structure and space. The final quarter hits with the best impact yet, thanks to these subtle choices and build-ups that take place throughout. Nicely done.
