Ur So good – Shaded

Ur So good – Shaded

Opening with upbeat synths, the vocals are quickly added as well as the electronic beats. The band goes with the dreamy vocal flow their known for going swiftly from chorus to verse and back. Going with more vocals on the bridge, the band does break the flow but just as fast goes back into it. The song ends with some soundbites.

Lyrically the song talks about running away and going for heartbreak once again.

What I like about this song is the dreamy vibe and the synth tunes that can be heard throughout the song.  

Untaken- Cleveland Avenue

Untaken- Cleveland Avenue

Kicking of with fast guitars and pounding drums, the song slows down its distorted guitars and introduces the vocals on the first verse. The chorus takes thing in a more emo direction but keeps with the hard-hitting vibe. The second verse has the same introduction as the first. Giving the guitar and drum their time to shine, to then have the last chorus introduced by some hard-hitting vocals

Lyrically the song talks about being put shit by someone of who you thought they loved you.

What I like about this song are the emotional tones in the vocals and the hard-hitting drums and guitars that can be heard throughout the song.

Light Me Up – Crooked Teeth ft Talker

Light Me Up – Crooked Teeth ft Talker

Starting right of with the vocals, accompanied by an acoustic guitar, the song quickly introduces electronic beats to the mix. Adding more vocals going into the chorus as well as switching the instrumentation to electric guitar, the song quickly flows back to its acoustic parts on the second verse. Kicking back to the chorus the song once more, the song plays itself out with this last chorus.

Lyrically the song describes a romance gone bad, with the protagonist still having the desire to go back to that relationship.

What I like about this song is the vocal chemistry, the mix of electronic and traditional instruments and the overall hyperpop vibe.  

Home is Where the Hea(r)t Is – Aim high ft Sleeping with sirens & Like Pacific

Home is Where the Hea(r)t Is – Aim high ft Sleeping with sirens & Like Pacific

Kicking of with pounding drums and distorted guitars, the song quickly adds its powerful vocals into the mix, going strong with the guitar the vocalists alternate before introducing the chorus. Keeping with its heavy hitting instrumentation, the song adds grunting vocals before giving the next guest vocalist his time to shine. The song goes forward with its alternating between of vocalist covering the full range and the vocals complimenting each outer. A growling scream introduces the breakdown part of the song ending in silence.

Lyrically sends a message of not forgetting once roots, no matter how far you go.

What I like about this song is the full use it makes of all the guest vocalist, with the alternating and complimenting each outer. Furthermore, I like the heavy instrumentation the is featured on the song.

Opening with acoustic guitar and electronic beats, the first verse features emo style raping by fantasy camp. The chorus adds vocal effects to the song as well as the vocals of elhc. Going back to the chorus once more, ends with the same acoustic guitar

Lyrically the song talks about the complexity of love and the struggles of not knowing what the other person wants.

What I like about this song is the overall flow and the electronic beats.
