Finding My Road
Finding My Road -SiZK “Water Drop Mix”-
1. Finding My Road
I think melody. really kicked things off this era with Finding My Road. Right from the start you can already hear that this is way different from the usual we get from her. First off, it’s got dance beats that borders onto electronica. Second, I think melody. is showing a lot of emotion and power which isn’t surprising, but it just made the song so much more awesome. My favorite part is in the middle where she’s like ta-do-ri-tsu line was so cool. Definitly one of her best A-sides.
Our first B-side is an interesting take on a ballad. There’s a lot of synths present, but not as much as before. I really can’t take a lot of this song because melody. just sounds very airy and it just kind of bothers me. Other than that it’s kind of a calm track to just listen along with, but it’s not exactly that good.
3. My Dear
My Dear seems to represent her style from her last 2 albums, which are least liked from melody. It’s got a light R&B beat and even though melody.’s vocals are much more better here, the song seems very forgettable in the end. I’m pretty sure if she had put this on the album, it would’ve been one of the worst.
4. Finding My Road -SiZK “Water Drop Mix”-
This is definitly one strange remix. I like how the video seemed to be an instruction to the song because of this voice that says ~verse 1~. melody.’s vocals are messed around with, filtered, vocodered…All the bells and whistles. The problem lies in the fact that the music is very odd. It’s like ethereal, but full of different twists and turns that it sort of becomes a hot mess. I think there was even a new lyrical section in it as well…Still the worst part was at the end when the song started flipping out and rewinding back to the beginning.
Seriously, READY TO GO! really began with this single. Finding My Road showed off melody. in a new light which was a great choice. I mean dance/electronica is good for her. The B-sides were obviously material for that. They seemed a little disheartening just to listen to, but were meh tracks. The remix was very interesting. It’s not bad, but with all the happenings going on it was kind of hard to follow along. Ok single though.
