Vandi Lynnae is an artist and performer who has recently released a brand new single, Hope in the Hurt, which will be followed by another one in many, Time Hurts.
This track is a perfect example of what it’s like to produce great music with a passionate and emotional feel.
Both songs have something amazing to offer, and each melody brings forth a different quality of the artist’s incredible creativity and delivery. Take the first song, “Hope in the Hurt.” This track is based on a minimalistic, yet rich and beautiful piano pattern over a catchy, understated drum beat. One of the most distinctive traits of this release is certainly the energy and the drive that fuels the performance of the artist. The lyrics are very emotional and come from a deeply personal place, which really highlights the genuine connection between Vandi and the lyrics that she sings. The vocals feel very animated and spontaneous, an obvious sign that this performer is actually genuinely connecting with her lyrics, in a much deeper way. This isn’t just a puppet singer popping out catchy hooks: there is a deeper concept behind the songwriting, which really adds weight to the mix.
In addition to the personable and edgy performance value, this release is also quite distinctive because of the sheer quality of the production. The mix is balanced and very detail-oriented, making for a lively, edgy, and stark sonic approach. In other words, there are many subtle nuances in this release, which really add to the richness of the track when summed up together. The frequency spectrum of the mix is also very balanced, with a tight, yet deep low end working wonders along with a smooth top end, which adds a sense of clarity to the music.
Hope In The Hurt stands out for its modern sound, but although the production is quite polished, it is never overproduced, allowing a lot of wonderfully organic and “human” elements to really add liveliness to the mix.
The second single in store for Vandi is titled Time Hurts. There is something truly special about this track, and much like the former, it is a highly emotional piece of music with some beautiful, genuine lyrics. The song begins with a very uplifting melody that has a bit of an 80s vibe, reminiscent of iconic artists such as Madonna or Annie Lennox, only to mention a few. However, this song is not just a piece of nostalgic revival with a retro sound: there is a modern wave to the music, which makes it fresher and easy to relate to. I love the fact that the melodies surround the vocal performance beautifully, and letting the drums come in later, enabling the track to gain a gentle dynamic build-up and go for a more personal listening experience for the audience. This song is very touching when it comes to its lyrical content, and it is going to fill your heart with hope. What I love about Hope In The Hurt and Time Hurts is that these songs have many things in common, but at the same time, they are also quite different from one another showcasing Vandi’s versatility and giving the audience a glimpse at her incredibly diverse skillset as an artist. She can seamlessly swing from catchy pop to understated ballads, and her amazing vocals are always enchanting and beautifully, never failing to impress! If these two singles are any indication, we can’t wait to hear what is in store for Vandi’s future in music!
Ultimately, I’d definitely recommend giving both songs a shot, particularly if you are a fan of artists such as Halsey, Billie Eilish, and Sia. This is the kind of music that will surprise you for its sonic variety, and it will keep you on the edge of your seat due to its catchy, yet unpredictable arrangement. I always love to hear from artists who set the bar higher and push the envelope when it comes to their productions: this certainly appears to be the case!
