Sorry for the delay but I was enjoying myself way too much in Paris and got totally buried under tons of writing to catch up on, managing my social media presence (I’m on LookBook now! And will try to be more active on Google+ too) and attending my first event as a fashion writer (head to my Twitter feed for details).
So, with the track of last week, I like to introduce you to Aussie-born, London-based Josef Salvat and the stunning new track from his new EP In Your Prime, called Open Season.
The track begins with a percussion that’s soon to be distracted by Salvat’s deep, dramatic voice that grabs your attention with every inspirational word elicited.
The punchy chorus reminds me of Drake’s Hold On, We’re Going Home, yeah, with the explosion multiplied by ten. As soon as it hits, you know you’re hooked and the next thing you know, you’ll find yourself singing along. Go on, tell me I’m wrong. 😉
Littered with piano keys and synths here and there, this is one slick and intuitive track beautifully done.
Salvat’s name may sound unfamiliar to most but he is not exactly new to the scene.
Early last year, he released his debut single This Life (included in In Your Prime), followed by Hustle in June and Every Night in October the same year. Apart from that, he’s been pretty much flying under the radar ever since. But as it turns out he’s been busy recording this short and sweet masterpiece packed with unusual rhythms and lyrics… I mean I’d never heard anyone describing a road as “arbitrary” in a song before. Not even metaphorically… Have you?
