CHAINED TO THE RHYTHM
Katy Perry feat. Skip Marley l CAP/EMI
After 3 long years of touring, fragrance releases, super bowl performances and getting cosy with Orlando Bloom, Katy Perry has returned to the music scene with her new lead single. The return was announced in what can only be described as the second biggest social media drop of 2017, following Beyonce's pregnancy news, storming her accounts with the single artwork that marked a new era. The track, titled "Chained to the Rhythm feat. Skip Marley" has a strong disco flavour, with modern reggae notes, courtesy of Marley. Initially, the track seems retro, dare I say ‘stale’. However, Perry works her pop magic with crystal vocals, reminiscent of Madonna's "Confessions on a Dance-floor". Sia's lyrical influence is made obvious when Perry delivers a dangerously catchy hook: "so comfortable we're living in a bubble, bubble, so comfortable we cannot see the trouble, trouble." While the track is generally quite ephemeral, the verses add much-needed lyrical density as the songstress questions “living our lives through a lens, trapped in our white picket fence, like ornaments.” Credit is also due to Max Martin's reliable production, making this a digestible pop tune sure to dominate radio In Australia.
Lost Kings feat. Emily Warren l SME
Lost Kings in only its second week on the chart move from #100 to #45, to become this week's, #1 Heatseeker and has alot to do with the vocals of Emily Warren, who was featured on another hit from Frenship with Capsize. Hilarious, accurate, and rhythmically infectious are just some of the terms to describe Lost Kings' Phone Down. This track is so danceable it is dangerous. I can already see people exerting themselves trying to match the bouncing bass and electric synths of its composition. Luckily, it features Emily Warren's lush voice to bring some humorous reality to its virtual beats. The song is very funny in truth: PUT THE PHONE DOWN! When you are with your boyfriend or girlfriend, it can be incredibly annoying to watch them be sucked in by their phone's multiple apps. From Google to text messaging, you can lose your lover's attention all too quickly. Yet, as Warren sings, the loss of attention is not just a nuisance; it is also insulting. Since when did a phone give you the love and affection of your partner. Do Angry Birds sleep by your side in bed? Welp, for certain boyfriends and girlfriends, they do, and Phone Down is the epic, EDM club-banger that approaches this commonly growing annoyance of phone interruption on relationship, which makes it a hit.
