BLAZAR strikes again with another addictive and creative new single. This time around, the alternative energy stands taller than ever, taking tips from mainstream pop as much so as organic, instrumental funk and electronic rock.
Rather than try to pigeon-hole Better by using genre labels though, this music is about the artist and the songwriting. BLAZAR has crafted a fascinating, refreshing and quickly energizing release, progressing uniquely from a spacious, intriguing verse, to a hard-hitting, bright and optimistic hook, which showcases not only melodic evolution but an entire re-working of the soundscape.
Without a doubt, a personal favourite from BLAZAR to date. That hook is immense, the seductive rising melody, those unexpected notes that still manage to satisfy and engage – it’s a memorable, uplifting and cool moment, which follows a series of fairly alternative, creative instances during the verse. Everything resolves perfectly, intrigue is followed by answers, and then when you revisit the song, the entire structure, passion and positivity of it shine with unquestionable brightness.
Impeccable writing, infectious and impressive, with more than a few production traits that really help further the recognisable identity of the artist.
This single marks the first of BLAZAR’s self-produced label releases, a huge leap to take for an indie artist, but the results speak volumes on behalf of dedication and skill alike.
