Linadrena – According To You

I came across this track by Linadrena on Twitter when one of my followers recommended me to listen to it. I have to admit, this genre wasn’t my normal go-to music whenever I review songs. But I had to give it a try because clearly, I had to be open to other genres if I want to legitimately call myself a music writer/blogger.

When I first listened to it, it automatically struck me as too avante-garde for my taste. I’ve always been used to the cheery, dancey, electropop sound. It was the opposite of what I normally listen to – melancholic, dark. I had to listen to it quite a few time for me to better understand what it’s all about.

A deeper and more in-depth listening to the song made me realize that it’s very well thought of and beautifully made. I liked the way the song was structured  – the layering of all the piano arpeggios, guitar riffs, drum and basslines, the synths, and the eclectic and unique singing was so one-of-a-kind it’s actually hard to compare it to any other song I’ve encountered. This song is actually something I’d listen to during those times when I just want to be left alone with my thoughts on a rainy Sunday night.

If you’re a fan of Woodkid, I’m sure you’re going to like Linadrena’s music. Check out his latest single All Your Dreams as well as his other stuff here.

A brand manager by day, a business student by night, and a music lover forever and ever. My day job fuels my passion for business, marketing, and advertising. As a bonus, it also pays for my insatiable thirst to discover and experience good music. As corny and cliché as it may sound, I believe music is the ultimate escape from reality. In my case, it's my way of keeping my creative juices flowing. It fuels my imagination, gives colour to my life, and keeps me in touch with my emotions -- all of which, I believe, are important for me to become a better marketer. This will be my own online space where I will share the things I care about -- brands and bands.
