Kyle Jaymes warms the heart and simultaneously explores the ache of modern life with this kick-back to the pop-rock anthems of a simpler decade.
Bursting through the speakers with vocal passion and a somewhat gritty yet still intimate, almost acoustic presentation, Motivation sees the artist delve into human emotions and uncertainty in a way that’s brilliantly relevant of late.
Melodically satisfying in the way that any timeless hit needs to be, Motivation features short lines that descend as each one finishes – a simple yet quickly catchy progression. This evolves throughout the sections, introducing a mighty outcry for the pre-chorus, and with these changes the instrumental also shifts gears.
It’s a musically nostalgic release, but from a song-writing and performance perspective there’s an air of freshness that’s a total pleasure to connect with.
Really well-written, genuine and emotive – a fine hit of escapism and understanding united. I look forward to hearing more.
