To Make You Mine (digital single)

Review by Gary Hill

The second single from this act I've reviewed for this issue, this is a complete departure from that other one. While that tune landed under prog for the art rock elements, this one is more of a club dance cut. That one was all performed on classical instruments, while this song is purely electronic. This is just as compelling and impressive as that other one, though.

This review is available in book (paperback and hardcover) in Music Street Journal: 2020  Volume 5. More information and purchase links can be found at: garyhillauthor.com/Music-Street-Journal-2020.

Track by Track Review
To Make You Mine
The opening of this seems to merge the electronic music of the 70s with an EDM kind of groove. As the cut works out that EDM quality becomes the driving force. The lead vocal arrangement has a real 80s pop vibe. The backing vocals bring a soulful element to the cut. The whole tune has some great hooks and sounds. This isn't even my kind of music, but I love it. It's that effective, really.
