Pop vocalist shines on new single Indigo.
When an act comes to the public eye through a TV talent show, releases an EP shortly after the series finishes and then disappears for over a year, it doesn’t usually bode well for the future. But when the artist returns with guest slots on some of 2017’s hottest tracks, it’s safe to say that the individual’s own comeback will be equally worthwhile.
Of course, it’s Will Champlin, former The Voice contestant and previous collaborator in Polarcodes‘ latest single. Now the pop artist is back with Indigo, a powerful groove-laden pop track that oozes passion and confidence. Champlin’s naturally sensual vocals prove playful bedfellows with seductive guitar riffs, infectious drums and a perfect chorus melody.
Feeling a little bit like Ed Sheeran meets Imagine Dragons, the track strikes a good balance between being a mainstream radio pop mainstay and something that offers a sense of individuality for Champlin. It’s a well worn view that TV music talent shows favour forgettable, dime-a-dozen artists, so it’s warming to see that Champlin is already showing he has more to offer.
