An Anthemic and Impactful Single from Melick

A new single from Melick featuring Trevor Laake has an amazing way of bending genres at free will by combining elements of instrumentation that come from rock, folk, dance, electronic, house, and so much more all rolled into one massive single that delivers such a huge sonic presence that you just can't look away from it.

"Fly High" is a track that has a lot of really well-arranged builds and climaxes and when the chorus is hit it's just anthemic and freeing because you have this heavy-handed electronic and house undertone with these harmonizing vocals that are just belting out and this is the kind of thing you can feel in your bones when it happens.

I adore the combination of instrumentation especially between the natural and the digital side because I know that that's not an easy thing to be able to build a song with when you combine those but here, it feels seamless as those tones melt together and creates an atmosphere that wraps itself around you and keeps you right where it wants to.

This is an intense song in a lot of different ways and there was a lot of attention to detail during its creation but no matter what it never loses this kind of character that it starts with in the first place, and this may be the most important part of everything.

The track is produced incredibly well, and all the intricacies are noted but, the even the production and the way the music is put together has heart, when it was created it was done with vocals in mind so Melick has a very unique and adaptive knack for creating songs that must start as visions in his head and then bringing them to fruition finally.

This is a high-octane single that you're able to sort of feed off of especially energy-wise because when you hear it, it hits with such a brightness with so much color and vibrancy that you end up walking away with those things still attached to you.

The whole hook and chorus of the track has a way of sticking around and bouncing throughout your thoughts for hours or even days after the song has ended and it's the kind of thing that can only be satiated by listening to the song again which to me, is very smart songwriting but I think.

There is a particular power behind this track, and it comes from the way that it is composed and built because the whole thing is orchestrated, and I say this because there are so many different moving pieces instrumentally, progressively, arrangement, and so much more that all come into play when creating a song like this.

I'm not sure if the artist himself was the one who mixed the track but it's likely he is, and either way, the mix of this song has to be talked about because, with songs that blend those tones and textures the way this one does, the mix is imperative.

This took an amazing year for the aesthetic to come through with as much power as it did and the final product is super impactful and hits all the sweet spots that it was supposed to with an aesthetic that you just get engulfed in.

A really well built and formulated single that came through the way it was meant to, check out "Fly High" when you get a chance and don't be afraid to turn it nice and loud.
