David McLorren displays impressive skills on new album
(Published: March 26, 2020)

David McLorren is a multi-talented artist: producer, songwriter, bassist, keyboardist, drummer, singer. His new album, The Villain, reflects his impressive skills and eye-opening vision.

The project features 12 tracks, each setting the bar higher in terms of sound and execution. The title track itself is actually an excellent opener because it really highlights the smooth tones and atmospheres that you can expect from this brilliant record. The song has a combination of tasteful electronic elements, jazzy chords, and some soulful melodies, going for a chill lounge vibe.

"Young Lion" is another highlight. The drum beat is hypnotic and unique, almost reminding of a cool combination of reggae and ska - Stewart Copeland would be proud. I love the intricacy of the drums, juxtaposed to the simplicity of the melodies here. The next song, "Heartbeat," has a more modern and experimental touch, with some beautiful effected vocal parts, along with a pulsating beat and some killer bass tones.

"Retaliation" is another swell track, this time hitting it harder in terms of electronic elements. The arrangement tips the hat off to trap and EDM, going icy grooves. By now, it is safe to say that one of the key elements behind this release is actually the diverse sound of this album. From hip-hop, to funk, soul, R&B and electronica, anything goes for , who has a knack for creating elegantly crafted pieces with simple, yet memorable melodies that truly hit the mark. Even the final song, "Like I Do," gives the record an epic conclusion. The combination of synthetic glitch sounds and heavenly melodies, especially at the start, is truly spellbinding.

If Brian Eno or Air had decided to do lounge music instead, this might have been how they would have sounded. The cuts I mentioned are only some of my personal favorites, but this album is special, and it really has so much to offer. As a musician, McLorren has a deep understanding of music. In particular, his bass playing on this record is absolutely stunning.
