Modern angst and unexpectedly bold vocal effects blend with the simple appeal of pop throughout Lena Luisa’s intimate yet energising Crazy Over You.
Rising up from the emotional ache of a revealing verse section, piano-led and indicative of an expressive artist, Crazy Over You soon explodes into modern EDM realms, with a hook that resolves with distorted synths and double-time drums for a bold change in direction.
Introducing Lena Luisa on a high, the song proves all at once relatable and creatively impactful. Familiar layers keep things connecting – the concept, the structure – and yet there’s also plenty of originality; enough so to give the track an edge of genuine passion and freedom of design.
Carefully walking the line between genres, it’s clear that there could be appeal in either an acoustic, stripped-back performance, or a fully orchestral, contemporary EDM-style set-up. In either case, Lena Luisa’s vocals would likely more than carry the weight of the project.
Hopefully there’s plenty more music to come.
