Tim: You may remember that back in March I described Adrian Lux as ‘a Swedish bloke who puts out some cracking dance tracks’, and said we should have featured him before. Well, this is from last November.
Tim: This dance tune is great; the singer admittedly not so much.
Tom: Ooh, now that’s where I disagree with you. The instrumentation didn’t work for me, but the vocals did.
Tim: Really? Because her Kate Nash style voice during the verses grates on me really rather a lot. When she starts singing for the chorus it gets okay, mind, and when she stops altogether the bit that Adrian does is brilliant. You don’t agree?
Tom: Well, it’s competent, certainly, but the favourite part for me is the build – its promise never really seems to turn into a decent chorus.
Tim: A vocal chorus, no, but the dance bit it’s got is great. I’m listening to it on repeat for that, and my god I wish she’d shut up and let him do his bit, so I’d love an instrumental.
Tom: But there’s nothing going on, instrument-wise, during those vocals. It’s be a bloody quiet instrumental.
Tim: Well, yes, obviously, because most dance-pop tracks don’t have much under the verses. I’ll rephrase it: what I’d like is a slightly restructured. instrumental with the choruses as they are and suitable material to fill in for her singing. That way there’d be no disappointing build – it would just be proper dance music at the level of the chorus.
And the level of that chorus is exactly why we should have featured him previously.
