Avneesha. - Lonely Heart
A true summer anthem, “Lonely Heart” has an arena-like presence, with Avneesha.’s voice serving as the beating heart of it all. The arrangement feels expertly done for they neatly frame the whole of the track. Within the sound there is a physicality to the whole of the work, for the bass and beats contort in unexpected ways. Everything here has a sculpted physicality to it. Volume is an absolute must as the song has a communal presence behind it, for it offers a sense of togetherness. Layer upon layer shifts in a darkly beautiful sort of way.
Delicate tech gestures introduce the piece. Nods to an industrial R&B mixture emerge. The cleverness of the track comes from this unusual pairing, helping to infuse it with some passion. Her voice is pure fire for every verse is chosen with the utmost of care. Usage of pitch-shifting on her vocals further adds to the unique quality of the piece. Almost geometric in terms of how it all comes together there is a surrealism to it. Verses here have a yearning quality to them for they run on through with so much intensity. Full focus on the sense of longing, of wanting something more, emerges out of the narrative. Various other effects further enter into the mix, adding to the sheer power of the groove, which even brings a bit of dub into the whole of the piece.
“Lonely Heart” shows off Avneesha.’s thoughtful lyricism with a bit of a poetic flair to them.
