Shine

Review by Gary Hill

This four song EP is entertaining. It’s modern pop music start to finish. It’s catchy and well performed. It’s just not particularly creative or unique. Still, this is the kind of stuff that dominates modern radio, so you really can’t complain about that.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2016  Volume 1 at lulu.com/strangesound.

Track by Track Review
Tonight

The chorus hook on this is catchy. The song is a fairly generic modern pop tune. The vocals feel just a little processed. It’s not to the point of annoyance, though. While this track might be less than original, it works pretty well.

Shine
A bouncy cut, this is stronger than the opener. The vocals seem more “real.” The cut is energized and fun. It’s still not overly original, but it’s meaty. Three really is a reason this is the title track. It’s a highlight.
Marry You
There are both folk and retro textures here. Yet, it’s another bouncy modern pop song. Again, this isn’t anything Earth shattering. It is, however, a well performed piece. It’s catchy and entertaining.
Sunny Afternoon
This love song doesn’t stretch things at all. Instead, it’s another accessible piece of modern pop music.
