Gianiluciano has an awesomely refreshing sound right now, the vibes are stronger than ever, and as an artist – his fusion of pop, RnB, and hip hop feels beautifully on point.
“No Trust” is a totally uplifting and musically organic song, dealing with adoration, love, infatuation. The track has been made as bright and infectious as it is by the perfect combination of three elements. The first, is the writing – it’s accessible, relatable, with easily memorable melodies. The second is Gianiluciano’s voice, he puts forth a flawless performance loaded with soul and style and confidence, meeting the laid back mood set by that RnB vibe but still offering plenty in the way of passion and energy.
There’s something immediately captivating about this video, the simplicity of it in no way affects the strength – on the contrary, this single-scene style of film draws your focus to (and keeps it on) the central character; a part played so authentically that every emotion and every idea is expressed with the entire body – as opposed to merely by the lyrics.
As the song progresses, a few minor details appear to increase the strength of the soundscape – a touch of rhythm, organic yet again, and a few distant vocal hums that add to that vibrancy and that soulful authenticity in a subtle but effective way. Everything about the song has been thoughtfully incorporated, it’s simplistic, organic – as stated – you can visualize this being performed right in front of you. Gianiluciano carries the song and its underlying sentiments in an effortlessly powerful way, so much so that when the track comes to an end, you miss it. That sense of movement and overcoming is empowering, lightly energizing – it makes you want to get up and do something positive; take steps forward, be the change you wish to see.
Relationships are rarely all smiles and selfies, as is often portrayed. Gianilucianos’ sense of realism is refreshing, and that empowering element runs deep. He wishes the other half well, but he knows he has the angle right; even so much so as acknowledging his own misjudgments – accepting error, being grateful for the opportunity to grow, and finally, being glad to have that wider perspective. The song builds slowly but surely, and it’s totally satisfying in the process. The hook is mighty and that’s exactly what’s left lingering in your mind after listening. The future looks beautifully bright for Gianiluciano and I can’t wait to hear more.
