It has been a while since I’ve posted, and a long while since I’ve done a song review. Apologies.
But my friends in Everafter asked me to do a review for their new single “Dancing in the Rain” and what better way to bring me back out of my absence than this.
“Dancing in the Rain” starts off with a very nice sound of effect of rain which sets the mood for a bit before the instrumental comes in. But when the music starts I was taken back a bit. I was under the impression that this was going to be a more mellow song because of the title and the sound effect in the beginning. I was wrong.
This song, although not as hard as you can imagine, still has a driving beat but it is not one to settle down with at the end of the night while you sip your glass of wine in a bubble bath. The beat is consistent and hard throughout the song and doesn’t vary often.
The vocals are clear, easy to understand the lyrics and the melody is very simple and easy to catch on to as well. I found myself singing the melody in my head a while after listening to the song. Overall, very solid song consistently and if you are into the classic hard rock sound, this song has a very similar vibe to it.
There was a guitar solo towards the middle which I was pleased to hear. Its not often that you hear guitar solos, like actual guitar solos, in rock songs so to hear this was a treat. Although I would have liked it to be a bit longer, but for the structure of the song I feel a longer guitar solo would have been a bit out of place.
I really enjoyed this song, my only criticism would be that there wasn’t much for tempo change. I am a person that loves a good tempo change and a good key change. Those are components of a song that really grab my attention and make me listen. If this song would have had one of those it would have had hold of my attention throughout the whole song, instead of me wondering and waiting for that change to come.
I enjoyed the last song that Everafter sent to me and I was excited to listen to more from them. Again, if you are a fan of classic hard rock, please give Everafter a listen! I will post the link to the song above and a link to their social media sites down below for you to check out!
Great work again boys!
