Release Rader #72

The week has flown by and it’s time for a new release radar, lets go!

That Song U Played – KIDKARMA

Opening with calming drums and calming backing vocals, the main vocals are quickly added, as well as more electronic effects. The song gets a louder at its chorus but keeps a relaxing vibe. In terms of instrumentation the beats also keep with the vibe. Filling the bridge with party sounds and a lone bass, contrasts for a moment into the one last chorus.

Lyrically the song is a basic love song, describing the protagonist bonding with someone over a song.

What I like about this song is the relaxing vibe, and the use of electronics

Keep Your Head Up – Lights Out

Kicking of with pounding drums and fast guitars, the songs vocals are quickly introduced. The chorus goes in a more pop direction than the emo hook of the first verse would suggest. The second chorus picks up the pace, and holds the same emo hook at the end. The chorus takes the pop direction again, contrasting with the bridge which is almost only instrumental. The song ends with one last chorus.

Lyrically the song is meant to lighten up the listener’s day, telling them to keep their head up. 

What I like about this song is the old-school pop punk feel, it feels like a mix between modern and neon pop punk

Alpha Omega – Trash Boat ft Kamiyada+

The song opens with far away TV sounds and distorted guitars, before adding the vocals into the mix. The harsh vocals change into electronic vocals on the pre-chorus and blow up on the chorus itself. The second verse mirrors the first one as well as the chorus. Kamiyada+ gets his moment to shine on the bridge, with short and aggressive flows, which result into the song’s breakdown. The song ends with one last chorus.   

Lyrically the song is filled with anger and frustration towards the world of today.

What I like about this song is how its chorus feels like a chant/ is a chant and the flow Kamiyada+ puts on its bridge. 

Real To Me – Little Us

Starting of with an instrumentation consisting of synths, guitar, and drums. The song takes things slower when the vocals make their debut. The chorus takes things to a higher note with the vocals, but keeps its balled style instrumentation. The second verse follows the same blueprint as the first verse, with the chorus doing the same. The bridge instrumentation mimics the opening of the song but puts the synth to the forefront, before going all breakdown. The song plays itself out with the synth breakdown.

Lyrically the song describes the protagonists broken heart.

What  I like about this song is the use of synths and the breakdown at the end.

Cut The Cord- Hightail

Opening with far away vocals and distorted guitars, the vocals get clearer on the first verse. The chorus keeps the same instrumentation, but adds some harsher vocals. Flying by with the second verse, the song is back at the chorus again. The bridge is only instrumental before the song ends with one last chorus.

Lyrically the song describes how the protagonist is choosing them self and is cutting the cord.

What I like about this song is the lyrical hook on the chorus and the upbeat instrumentation
