Hej America! (Or I should say North America) - This time around my friends at Bongo Boy have asked me to give a listen to, and share my thoughts about the newest single from Kyla. Kyla comes from Canada and the name of her single is Don't Ya Worry 'Bout Me.
The cover art sets the tone for what to expect. This is a neo-60s type of song. The 60s vibe is prominent throughout the track. That, of course, is a double edged sword. On the one hand the 60s gave us some brilliant work by the people at Motown and some absolutely stunning iconoclastic earthquakes by the likes of Jimi Hendrix. On the other other hand, the 60s also gave us smelly hippies sitting in drum circles...
Fear not, Kyla has much more in common with the former than the latter. What I hear in this song is a throwback to Motown. (As a side note, if you have never seen the documentary “Standing in the Shadow of Motown” I highly recommend it.)
Kyla has a very good voice. Personally, I could listen to her sing all day. She just grooves; she has enough snarl in her voice to be provocative. All in all Kyla provides the listener with a pleasant musical escape - she also make me laugh. The Mr. Ed imitation along with the Bela Lugosiesque singing of the word fangs cracks me up. The thing that makes this song fun is that the listener has the feeling that Kyla is in on the joke. Lest, you are tempted to think this song might devolve into a parody, the moments of humor are just that, moments from which Kyla quickly returns to her signature strong soulful expression of emotion.
All in all Kyla made me smile and I enjoyed her song. Give it a listen. I think you will like it too. - The Grouch | Sweden
