Brilliant rock warmth and catchy riffs guide us into this infectious anthem of an indie hit – Presley Duyck keeps things nostalgic yet fresh throughout an emotive Happy 22!
Gentle vocals, a little pop-punk as they rise in passion, with short lines for the verses – pop sentiments that connect and comfort. The voice impresses increasingly throughout, one moment presenting a level of further rock, later veering off towards soul-pop with meandering melodies and likable inflections. All in all, stunning vocals, and particularly great song writing that progresses from familiar to outright original as the track goes on.
Presley Duyck has a unique sound right about now, authentic and interesting, with lyrics that captivate yet prove just relatable enough to connect with and embrace audiences.
Fantastic, unpredictable in hindsight, and a pleasure to listen to thanks to this creative freedom and the rising, reflective emotion and heart of the poetry and performance.
