Dreamy and reverb-kissed guitar fingerpicking sets a beachside vibe for this intimate new indie-pop single from Project Haze.
Initially creating a bright and uplifting instrumental feel, organic by nature and appealing for its optimism and live sound, Serotonin soon goes on to welcome in a surprisingly gentle, up-front vocal and simple, comforting melody. Here we get a sense of purpose – reflective writing that ponders issues in a manner that prompts the listener to do the same.
As the details increase, the personal touch grows stronger, more genuine, and this comes with a rising level of passion in the delivery and indeed in the surrounding soundscape. The band unite to raise the mood, to resolve beautifully, and every section intrigues and connects effectively as all of this takes place.
Story-telling that feels partly folk-like and partly pop-punk ready, Serotonin blends genres in a natural manner, and ultimately winds up feeling like a pop-rock classic of timeless, memorable quality.
Beautifully arranged and captured, a refreshingly authentic hit of individuality that proves true to the Project Haze sound.
