New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Trio of Awesuhm is not just any other ordinary band with expert musicians jamming out some tuneful sounds. They are the rhymes of a saga that come together to generate something that is far beyond the conventional definition of music and melodies. This New York-based folk band is an art that leaves behind its eclectic sculptures to cherish and listen for years to come. Singer and songwriter, Monica
Uhm, is the artist and mastermind behind the accumulation of this five members group. Already quite popular with their debut album, Cowboys & Aliens, they have further reached for a bigger and better audience with a single from the album, Nevertheless, which is already going around the internet with its melodious charisma and optimistic soulfulness.
The single, Nevertheless, is light-hearted, soothing track with pretty well-structured lyrics and synchronized vocals. Sung by Monica
herself, the song starts with guitar riffs and keyboards tunes which gives the prelude a slightly illuminated grip before Monica
takes over. Monica
displays her flair prominently as she mouths the words and beads them into perpetual versus. With every word, her voice holds the expression of articulation and originality.
The words are easy and meaningful and her vocals just add the much-required style that spices up the overall track. With inevitable drumming by James
Kirkpatrick, the song does take quick crests but soon falls back over an evenly modulating tune. Greg 'Glue' Schettino takes the guitar strumming in the background which is mind-blowingly brilliant and well balanced with the pulsating bass strings by Ken Dircks. Hovering over the melodious enchantment the track takes uniform pacing which marks the sheerness and remarkable tunes of folk music.
Just as the name suggests, the basic theme of the song is diversely positive and rocks over the edges of optimism. Monica's enthusiastic vocals and folk musical arrangement generate an ambiance that is not only tuneful but packed with high sources of vibrancy and effervescence The track displays the little moments of life that come and go, to be either forgotten or remembered as a cherishing memory. Nevertheless, life is a ride over a rough roaring sea, which takes and gives in equal amounts. Filling in the positive vibes the song glides through many tough corners that are well managed and balanced by the team. The teamwork shows in each moment of the song and it is praiseworthy how so many heads can work over a single drawn craft. Truly brilliant.
Apart from the contents and melody, a genuine word of praise goes for the recording and production unit for their endless efforts to make this single what it is today. With high-quality sound clarity and apt digital amplification, the effect of the single has enhanced several folds which is remarkable. With so many artists coming and leaving the limelight, some do leave their footprints behind. Trio of Awesuhm is one such band who would be remembered and appreciated for their present and upcoming works with greater expectation and genuine admiration.
