ALICE JUNE - The Right Way
“The Right Way” brings grandeur and fireworks to highlight the moment when spark becomes flame between two people.
In love, self-reflection is often the key to growing ourselves in the context of a relationship. As one grows with their partner throughout the course of being together, parts of ourselves are lost as those empty spaces are filled with our partner’s lost pieces, and vice versa. This initial mixing of personalities, interests, and pursuits, and the journey the follows it, is the story behind the latest single from Italian singer-songwriter Alice June, “The Right Way”. Influenced predominantly by British indie pop artists such as Florence + the Machine and Bat for Lashes, June’s indie rock/folk stylings help to give a more cinematic and dramatic feel to something so often considered a very normal process in love. A transnational production between Italy, England, and the United States, “The Right Way” builds into a semi-bombastic powerhouse of a song carried by June’s light alto vocal stylings.
While there are obvious reflections of some of June’s aforementioned influences in this song, there also exists a strong 80s power ballad influence: give this song a bit more gated reverb and it wouldn’t be surprising to see Bon Jovi performing something like this three-and-a-half decades ago. This influence mostly arises from both June’s chorus as well as the heavy guitar embellishments that sit in the background of the song, something that really pushes the song into harder rock territory while still firmly remaining in the indie rock realm. In short, “The Right Way” brings grandeur and fireworks to highlight the moment when spark becomes flame between two people.
