“HEARTBREAKER,” MARK IMPERIAL’s newly released soul-pop/rock single, presents the wonderfully soulful, gloriously nostalgic tone and expressive depth of his sound with enduring style.
MARK IMPERIAL, who is based in Sydney, was born in Australia, and raised in the Philippines, is regarded as one of the new emerging Pop-Rock performers with a distinct musical vision and taste.
When he was a youngster, he fantasized about establishing his Pop-Rock band with his friends, inspired by groups such as 5 Seconds of Summer, Blink-182, and Green Day. His love of music was inspired by his personal life experiences and unanticipated seasons, which inspired him as an artist.
On September 21, 2021 (his 23rd birthday), he presented to the public his first track, “HEARTBREAKER,” which was inspired by his experience and propelled by a vision to produce a “remedy” for brokenhearted people. The song was supposed to have a sorrowful, salty-emo vibe. Still, its vibrant and funny portrayal of heartbreak sent a positive message that passing through the season of brokenheartedness can also be enjoyable!
Lyrically, “HEARTBREAKER” is both reflective and hopeful, as the title suggests. There’s a reality in the verses, poetic honesty that seems tragic and heartbreaking in its depth, but there’s also a strong sense of possibility in the hook and entire theme.
“HEARTBREAKER,” which moves at a slow but steady pace, revealing a developing passion from the expanding details and vocal evolution from MARK IMPERIAL, resolves unexpectedly at the halfway point, with a suddenly mesmerizing hook notion that sticks in your memory.
As the song progresses, the soul-pop/rock quality grows subtly. The vocal layers entangle and shower down all around, accompanied by dashes of additional keys, synths, rhythms, and echoes of complexities, all of which work together to depict a distinct sense of passion swelling up.
Stunning, extremely well-crafted, from the heart yet sophisticated, and entirely appropriate for a modern audience. As previously noted, it is also naturally in line with MARK IMPERIAL’s sound and style — there is an evident thread of identity weaving throughout his songs to date.
