Stylishly injecting a fresh sense of identity into the alternative pop scene, New York-based Bentley Robles leads with creative sound-play, catchy melodies, and contemporary scene-setting throughout his brand new single Cardiac.
Taking the known-to-work building blocks of timeless pop, and fusing these with a clear level of personality in both the vocal tone and the progression of the melody and story, Cardiac offers just enough in the way of familiarity to appeal to a broader audience – and as much in the way of character to give Robles’ sound and style a clearly recognisable core.
Depth of voice is a big part of that, as is the unique nature of this multi-layered soundscape and the various riffs that rain down as the hook drops in. And on top of everything, the song’s hook rises up passionately to offer a genuinely anthem-like moment that pop fans far and wide are likely to connect with and remember.
It’s a laid-back song in subject matter, focused on the fun times and not taking itself too seriously – all of which seems to suit the carefree and colourful nature of the artist’s image and creative intentions.
