Sometimes we hear a new song that makes our ears prick up instantly, the song grabs all our attention and we stop what we are doing to listen and groove along. That is the reaction I had when I heard Hunter DeBlancs new single “Sydney”.
For those of you who are new to Hunters music, it’s got that rad retro influence that never goes out of style. Sydney blends a cool array of synth-pop sounds and Hunters vocal draws us in from the opening line “forgive me” before exploding into a golden mix of INXS style guitar licks and that big dance floor beat. The production is aurally impressive, it’s a sound fit to dominate radio stations and dancefloors around the world – because we just can’t get enough!
The lyrics reflect on Hunters wild weekends and late nights drinking and going off the deep end as he makes reference to his escape to a big city down under, sailing out past the iconic opera house. It’s clever, catchy and cool as f*k! This song is an anthem and will surely have people of all ages throwing their hands in the air and singing along. It’s that secret formula to a killer song that Hunter has unlocked in Sydney – it’s got feeling, it’s got soul and it connects with us in the heart all the while making us dance, sing along and go crazy.
Hunter is a well-seasoned singer and instrumentalist one that can back up his recorded performance very well on the live stage, he’s a mad talent and has certainly nailed it in this pumping track. It’s only a matter of time before Sydney goes viral, perhaps by the time I have finished posting this review.
