We all know that I’m a sucker for sad folksy songs. If the guitarist sheds a tear, I am balling. So when I listen to an electronic-pop song and like it, you know that I REALLY like it.
Case in point: “Ares” from London trio Winters Island. They have an edgy vibe to get me dancing but plenty of heart to satisfy my yearning for something profound. This single rolls on with punchy and animated keys yet the words that glide on top of the peppy electronic beat are honest and provocative. This is a track that certainly does not disappoint. Just goes to show that those lonely bearded gents aren’t the only ones that can woo my heart. Winters Island, keep up the splendid work, and I look forward to listening to more of your thrilling and soulful beats.
