Featuring sweeping, reverb-kissed guitar work, a subtle rhythm and a classic country-Americana mood, Alexander Paul’s new single The Storm sets the pace in a quickly likable way.
Introducing a softly soulful vocal lead, The Storm pours through with a classic and fairly timeless set-up, and progresses from mellow verses to its emotive and addictively satisfying hook with clear strength of song-writing. There’s even a slightly Johnny Cash-like aura to the verses and this particular choice of melody, with a Tanita Tikaram twist to the groove.
Then we get the brightness of the hook, that uplift, and the simultaneous sense of resolve suggested by the lyrics – the concept being to weather the storm, to never let go and never give up. It’s an inspiring theme, particularly during these times we’re sharing, and the mood and delivery of the whole thing tie into this passionate and motivational core beautifully well.
A real pleasure to turn up loud and escape into.
