China’s Mrs Legend 3rd place runner up and public vote’s Mrs Talented and skilled. Quite a lot for so-called up-coming artist, I think you’ll agree?
Interesting selection of 4 songs on this EP. I’ll breakdown as follows:
‘Don’t mislead me’ has a West Coast Lo-Rider Slow Jam style feel to it. Laid back with a similar chord progression to Minnie Ripperton’s classic ‘Loving You. Organ and Rhodes piano add a nice flavour. Melancholy soul.
Nasty Car is an Electro Pop Rock song. Lots of glitchy distorted synth sounds. Lots of anguish in the vocals laced with samples. Interesting arrangement. As with all Madame’s songs you get something unusual that draws your attention. Rapping on this one. Nasty Car is about independence. Got an 80s sound to it mixed with a modern twist.
‘Love’ is a ballad traditional Ballad in the classic sense quite notable points on this one is the musical arrangement. Fresh, light, melancholy, nice a piano and string arrangement and lots of space for the vocal. Vocal the song fits Mme’s voice well its simple and emotive. Touches of Rap draw attention too.
Showing another string to her bow we have a track called ‘Politics’. Politically charged rap song. In your face social commentary about the gritty side of things through her eyes.
