Brayton Bowman bounces back in 2016 with an electro-funky primer track for his album 22 Minutes Later. After a long wait from his previous EP releases, Here | Now and The Update, this brassy upbeat pop piece is an eargasmic treat in all respects.
MNEK skillfully blended a base of carefully mixed blips, strong chords, future-soul sonics, and pulsating syncopated rhythms, in a tapestry of melodious synths and tuba lines. Brayton’s powerful vocals and lyrics express hard-hitting truthful social commentary that reveal how worthless and shallow how people can be as they flaunt what really doesn’t matter to Bowman, or to most of us, so to speak.
The most powerful part lies in the catchy harmonic chorus and painfully honest lyrics which drills into you.
“Where you come from
It may be cool to pretend that you’re V.I.P.
In your daddy’s Mercedes Benz
Ain’t all about what you got
Stop tryna be something you’re not…”
So, after listening to this track, “tell me What’s Really Good”?
