This new song “Money” by Baggalott gives off some pretty great vibes from the very beginning. The lines surrounding the key moment of “Money” will create a hook that melodically makes its way into your long-term memory fairly quickly.
The type of rap that Baggalott offers up has a lot to it that is fairly fresh sounding. He’s not simply mimicking other artists and is not particularly reminiscent of anyone else at all – which is great; that voice is his, everything from the tone, the mellow yet deep performance style, and even the slight hint of an accent, you know who you’re listening to. The flow of the rap performance is really easy to listen to, it adds to the summertime vibe created by the music and the chorus melody, and so the whole thing is very complete sounding – every element is united, working in the same direction, setting the same scene.
Some of the instruments used in this track are quite unusual, so although the track has a very classic feel to it – that nostalgia we all crave – there is a lot about it that is brand new, and that’s something that speaks volumes. It’s the kind of track that really gets you geared up for the good times, encapsulating the right kind of mood for summer. Some of those retro synth sounds are subsequently really effective in this setting.
The music unfolds progressively – it takes its time to strike, slowly captivating you with a greatly confident sort of calmness. It sets a mellow vibe at first that really captures your attention and draws you in. As things build up, it’s not a wall of various instruments layered on top of one another to present intensity, as is sometimes the case, instead, it’s a unique and delicate touch of artistic expression – partly in the form of very specific synth and effect choices.
The hit of the music is enhanced by the leading vocal, which is beautifully performed; relevantly mellow, yet subtly and crucially emotional. It’s also a vocal that has been flawlessly and effectively incorporated into the mix, really helping the entire project just wash over its audience with great style.
