The genre-defying artist, by the name of Rowe, has struck again with his new song
‘Um, K?’ Following on from success with his debut 'King', Rowe continues to break
boundaries in Music and our continued perception of genre collected music.
The song depicts the mood for the whole track within the first 20 seconds of its introductory drums which have added oomph to roll the bass which creates a mood common in R&B. The next introduction is the synth, which features all the way through this exciting track.
'Um,K?' has taken a lot of influence from the 1975 with its sprawling lyrics, and the
heartfelt meanings of the lyrics. As well as Rowe's vocals which can switch from very calm as seen at the start of the track to a much heavier style to his voice, which could be representative of someone in the punk rock style, for example, blink-182
The most effective point in the track is the drop out of instruments that have previously taken all the attention, for example, the synth will often drop out leading to the drums and guitar taking all the attention and a thinner texture to the music happening before everything comes back in for the chorus.
'Um, K?' will explode onto the music scene, because of its incredible musicality and
skill, which is so evident in this song, and the fact that it isn’t your ‘typical’ music that is out there now.
