Short and catchy rhymes delivered by a voice of depth in both emotion and tone guide listeners into the stylish and smooth sound of Vince Vanguard’s Heartbreakers.
Featuring seductive hints of freestyle electric guitar, alongside trip-hop-style rhythms and a retro array of keys and synths, the humble production leads with a soulful edge of relevance to its own lyrical story.
The guitar is a defiant highlight, subtle moments that bridge the gaps between vocals, breaking up the pattern of familiarity with a freely expressive moment indicative of a mood-setting artist and indeed an impressive live performer.
Simple yet effective is key, and at just two minutes and forty-six seconds in length, Heartbreakers sets out and succeeds in achieving its goal. The concept is clear, the mood aptly sultry and mildly melancholic, the overall resulting track easy to let go to.
In addition, Vince Vanguard delivers a recognizable yet humble style and identity – something that will likely ring loud across all future releases.
