This recent release “Late night drinks” by artist GUMnWATER has a pretty big feeling of experimentation to it from the very beginning. GUMnWATER is a well-talented and young artist from Australia. And this whole thing is a unique unusual setup, alongside what is genuinely a really well-written and interesting song, so on the whole what you get is something completely fresh, yet familiar enough to keep you feeling comforted, and listening intently.
The track appears as much more of a soundscape than a song, especially in terms of structure. The music is gentle but intense; it builds, without getting noisy. The story unfolds, the melody of it soaks into you in a nicer way. As the audience, we are pretty sure you all are going to love this track when you listen to the same at once..
It appears to be the case that the song expresses exactly what the artists felt and intended to express. What we receive as strangers discovering it, is something hugely emotional and raw and real – whether our minds wander to the same place or not is unknown, but the feeling is strong, and that’s where the genuine power lies. The hook section of this song almost hides within the music, but it somehow grabs you nonetheless – it’s not a significant change in melody, there’s just something about these tracks that hit hard.
“Late night drinks” touches on real-life in a huge way, and when you fuse it with those good vibes embedded in the music, it’s a winning combination. The hook section of this track is inescapably memorable, the melody casts its spell on you, and once it’s in your head it’s there for good – likely to bring you back for more soon enough. GUMnWATER’s entire catalog of music is more than impressive. Well worth checking out.
