Great songwriting from NeilGrandeur brings a brilliant hit of rhythm and good vibes in the form of new single Bash It.
While there’s a fairly raw finish to the production and the vocals, this gives the song a kind of authentic, indie aura. And even in the face of limitations, the songwriting is the key, and the way Neil switches up the flow, moves from lower tones to falsetto, rap to melody, all helps further that inherent groove that gives the single such a mighty energy and bounce.
Underneath it all, a simple keyboard progression offers a four-chord loop, a tripped up beat keeps things moving in the backdrop, and a longer-form, retro synth plays out an additional melody to add further character and fill out the quiet spaces. Meanwhile., NeilGrandeur takes full command of the performance, meandering through these various sections with style, confidence, and faultless rhythm.
Really well done, an easy track to get on board with.
