Bursting into life with every layer of voice and synth-soaked instrumental, Mandalan wastes no time setting the mood with an energising and colourful Everything I Ever Need.
Increasingly emotive throughout its sub-three-minute lifespan, the single makes fine use of distortion and melody combined.
The vocals back and forth between features for a clear sense of dynamic appeal, and the instrumental too leans from weight to lightness intermittently – as per the changing stages of the story.
Intimate yet bold and intense as it rains down all around, the song calls out on behalf of love in a classically euphoric EDM fashion.
There’s familiarity to the set-up, but there’s also plenty of identity in the overall production – the placement of the chords, the ups and downs, the switches between vocals. It’s a collaborative release that celebrates the passion and skill of all involved, whilst providing an end of summer anthem that’s easy to escape into. Listen loud.
