Welcome to Space!
Sharing today some real cool vibes with a very brand new artist: ROBBEE.
Singer and songwriter based in the UK, we’ll review ROBBEE’s debut track released a few months ago, produced by Clem Cherry who worked also for big artists such as Lewis Capaldi and Yungblud.
ROBBEE as Robbie Coles is one of a kind: after touring and doing music with bands for most of his life, Robbie got diagnosed with cancer forcing him to take a break from music.
After years of “rest”, he finally decided to get back to music and start his solo project, releasing the first single MAD LOVE.
The song is about toxic relationships and not giving up on them, but at the same time not trying to fix the issues or change the bad habits, with everyone telling you that’s faulty but you know you’ll make it work.
The intro of MAD LOVE is played by some ambient pads and filtered vocal chops with a stage reverb, a very short intro that leads straight to a fancy retro-style verse.
Pop drums and vintage acid bass lead the rhythm, ROBBEE’s vocals kick in with a soft and decisive tone. We appreciated the 80’s reverb added on the vocals, it gives the song a unique style.
After the verse, we’ll hear a pre-chorus made of wide fx elements and melodic plucks, with soft and deep vocals to help keep dynamic-ness to the track and give space to a powerful chorus.
The chorus is a mix of 80’s/dream pop, with big reverberated vocals and astonishing vocal hooks, a persuasive style that will get stuck in your head and you won’t get rid of it!
Hopefully, this is just the beginning for this artist, we can’t wait to hear more!
