A musical earpleaser with a solid hook, steady repetition and production that pops.
We’re huge fans of finding emerging alternatives to mainstream and popular artists, which is why Andrea Rocha‘s latest track Ocean Salt is right up our street.
Rocha, being a composer and producer, doesn’t actually lend to the familiarity factor of the track itself. That element comes from guest vocalist Kamilla Lovett, whose pristine vocals light up the mix in a way that evokes the spirit and feel of Ellie Goulding. It’s a solid medley of polite purity, ideallic innocence and undeniable strength.
But of course, all of that wouldn’t make up for a sub-par instrumental backing. This is where the magic of Andrea Rocha shines through, with a superbly crafted track with immaculate form that oozes pop appeal. Of course, Lovett’s vocal carries its own pop weight but it couldn’t be this good alone. Rocha shows herself as more than just a good songwriter, but one with a vision that translates through both the musical form and the commendable production values.
