The ConSoulTant

New Year, New You. (Digital Single)

Review by Gary Hill

The groove here is energetic. The vocal hook is catchy. There’s a cool little rap section mid-track, too. The keyboard sound that dances across the top is crisp and fresh. This isn’t anything earth shattering in terms of creativity or breaking new ground.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2014  Volume 1 at lulu.com/strangesound.
Track by Track Review
New Year, New You

The fact is, when it’s this catchy that doesn’t really matter. This is a pretty perfect pop song with a dance texture. It’s a lot of fun and really has a positive vibe to it. I like it a lot. It’s not really my usual type of music, but it manages to work quite well. That says a lot, really.

(Editor's Note - Music Street Journal is set up for the allocation of albums, not singles - particularly not one-song singles. So, in the instances, like this one, where we've covered single song releases, we've had to make some adaptations for formatting. In the case of this one, just imagine both track review and overall review reading as one set of copy. )
