Release Radar #88

While we’re counting down the days until Christmas, I got a new release radar ready, lets dive in!

It’s Just A Feeling – Modern Error

Opening with pounding drums and eerie guitars, the song quickly adds vocals to the mix, which have a slight effect to them. The pre chorus adds some more effects before the chorus alternates between loud and soft. The second verse flies by before re-introducing the chorus again. Changing pace on the bridge the song puts more focus on clean vocals and the ambient sounding instruments. The song ends with the chorus continuing until its cut off.

Lyrically the song talks about feelings of loss and the protagonist overthinking.

What I like about this song is its quick flow and the alternation in the chorus.   

Funeral Song – Bronnie

Starting of with a guitar filled intro, the song adds upbeat drums as well as the vocals flowing with the instruments. The chorus has more of a pop hook, with ampule highs and lows. The second verse gives the same feel as the first and flows right back to the chorus. The song doesn’t feature a bridge instead ending with the second chorus.

Lyrically the song is partly a breakup song, and partly talks about living live to the fullest.

What I like about this song is the hook featured on the chorus, which is stuck in your head pretty quickly.

Party With You – Cobra Starship

Opening with synth beats, the song waits to add the vocals with the instrumentation still consisting of the electronics. The second chorus adds a different instrumentation, which still is electronic in nature. Going with the same feel for the second verse, the song builds back to the chorus once again, which also marks the end of the song.

Lyrically the song is simply about wanting the party with someone who catches your eye.

What I like about this song, is the nostalgia feel, while fully a party song it does give off that classic “Cobra Starship vibe.

In Threes – As It Is ft Set It Off and JordyPurp

Starting of with eerie beats, and vocal flows the song slowly gets louder in its vocals. The chorus adds guitars to the beats featured from the start. Coming back around with the second verse, the song follows the same blueprint as the first, as well as the chorus. The song also features a third verse, which seems the act as the bridge, introducing an ending which features a modified chorus.

Lyrically the song talks about misery in general and is based on the saying misery comes in threes.

What I like about this song is how it stands out from “As It Is” Their earlier work and the songs they have released as leading up to their new album.

Lockdown Love Anthem- Jack And Sally

Opening with distorted guitars, the song adds distorted vocals to the mix before returning to the drums and guitar. The verse lengthens into the chorus. Flowing back into the bridge, which marks the end of the song with its loud instrumentals.

Lyrically the song talks about love in times of lockdown and the veil between boredom and attention.

What I like about this song is its quick flow and the current subject matter.
