Wildy's World - Sunday Singles - February 28, 2010

Katia - Girl Like Me
2010, Katia

Katia's first single, Girl Like Me is generic pop with a capital G. The song is a pleasant listen, consisting of a solid light dance beat and an affable melody, but the vocal line is a mess of computerized effects, from reverb so heavy at times it’s dizzying to electronic effects that might be corrective in nature. The mix of heavy vocal production and moderate production values may speak volumes either about Katia or about the producer. Either way, it's a pleasantly innocuous track that doesn’t make a strong impression.

Rating: 2.5 Stars (Out of 5)

Darlingside - Surround
2010, Darlingside

Surround plays a little bit to formula in a world where Radiohead and Coldplay influence a lot of artists. LV has a very pleasing tenor voice, and the strings offer interesting accents to the song. The melody is a bit predictable but not one you're likely to find yourself singing along to. The song is decent enough, particularly as part of a larger project, but doesn't have the chutzpah to be an attention-getting single.

Rating: 3 Stars (Out of 5)

Craymo - Passion For Fashion (PFF)/Happy Birthday (remix)
2010, Craymo

Craymo's Passion For Fashion (PFF) is a catchy dance tune. On a personal level I didn't enjoy it, but I can see how it might catch on in the club scene, particularly with the right remix. Happy Birthday is hokey and fun as well as danceable. This one sounds great for a kid's birthday party.
