Artist Mallrat shines bright in this compacted, electro-pop tune, that will be sure to make you dance.
Deliciously fresh electronic sounds buzz through the chorus, creating brightness throughout the song. The vocalist reveals her wallflower attitude, and thoughts and perceptions of society through the lyrics, capturing the attention of the listener, while also contrasting greatly to the upbeat production of the song. Her distinctive tone creates originality and further conveys her careless attitude.
The vocalists medium-higher register creates an airy feel to the song, and matches the high pitched synthesised flute riff that is a fill in the chorus. This sort of vocal sampling is becoming more popular in pop music, as it creates a unique sound and adds texture to songs.
The snappy drum beats build momentum throughout the song, and continue to build upon the volume of the synth layers and vocal line. The unchanging tempo allows the song to carry through with its momentum and continue that build further.
The summery vibes and complex production conveys this song as a promising release, leaving listeners awaiting eagerly for what this young artist will bring forward next.

Clouded in mystery, Australian producer HOWLE presents a stunning electronic piece, whose synths certainly live up to its name.
The repetition of the lush synth in the intro creates anticipation for where the song will lead, and also sets out the tempo and the rhythm. The use of an arpeggiator in the lead up to the chorus creates significant build, and works in a different rhythm to the first synth that hit our ears. Through the use of cymbals, when the chorus hits it feels like a release of breath after being held in for too long. This creates a climactic experience for the listener and allows them to release their own breath with the music. The fast, cutting rhythm of the drums creates contrast from the vast silk of the synths that we hear, and allow differentiation between separate sections of the song, without a vocalist to do so. The chord progressions provide interest to the listener, through the use of dotted notes and syncopation, which make the rhythm more complex, allowing all the empty space to be flooded with synthesizers. The chords used create interest through the use of accidentals which create unexpected changes to the progression.
Overall, excitement has been created through contrast of instruments, syncopation and anticipation. The results are pleasingly smooth, leaving plenty of room to develop and showcase more talent.
