Fifty Fifty’s debut album was a nice shock, providing a wide range of kinds with constant songwriting and execution. Title monitor Greater wasn’t essentially the most immediately participating selection for promotion, however it endured properly over time. Its languid vitality frames new single Cupid, although the ladies have subdued their sound even additional this time round. Their burgeoning discography is creating a pleasant vibe, however I concern it might veer too intently towards coffeeshop/lounge music for my style.
Cupid suits neatly inside two current Ok-pop traits. It’s acquired a little bit of metropolis pop sheen, although positively on the lower-energy facet of the style. And, it harnesses a vibey, minimalist type that compliments lots of the buzziest woman group tracks of the second. Cupid is unquestionably “cool,” no matter which means. However, is it any enjoyable to take heed to?
The reply is sure – in locations. The refrain has a beautiful sense of raise that may have flourished if supported by extra daring manufacturing. The group’s vocal concord is an actual deal with and so they pull off this trendy sound very effectively. I can think about Cupid as good background music for a wide range of actions. However, I’m undecided it’ll take pleasure in the identical longevity as Greater. The track performs an excessive amount of like a flat line to really grip my consideration. It’s relentlessly nice and melodically satisfying in locations. I simply want I may level to at least one ore extra standout moments which have me racing to press replay. With so many of those vibe-focused songs on the charts proper now, I concern Cupid threatens to mix in with the competitors.
