Happy To Serve (digital single)

Review by Gary Hill

This is the first single from British act SONI. The tune has a real retro feeling to it. It's a solid pop piece that avoids many of the traps of modern pop music.

This review is available in book (paperback and hardcover) in Music Street Journal: 2020  Volume 4. More information and purchase links can be found at:

Track by Track Review
Happy To Serve
Bass brings this cut into being. Horns join as the classy, soulful jazzy arrangement kicks in. This has a vintage 1970s vibe to it. The cut has some cool hooks and a great energy to it. The number has some spoken male vocals in a break. That section also brings a parental advisory. There are hints of the Beatles at times, but overall this is more funky soul music than anything else. It's quite strong, too.
