CASEY URBAN - Favorite Lover
Casey’s deep and powerful voice invites you to immerse yourself in her words, in her notes. It’s a story that gradually unravels, a story of gradual corruption reflected in the song’s tones and harmony.
On Rotation: CASEY URBAN - Favorite Lover
Imagine a sonic journey that immerses you in a sea of emotions, where each note is a wave that envelops you in melancholy, and upon emerging, you find yourself with a subtle and beautiful shock of psychedelia. This is what Casey Urban offers with her new song “Favorite Lover”. The artist, who has already performed at Heaven Can Wait in New York, danced with Snoop Dogg, and will have her one-woman show in New York on October 8th, shows promise in her early career.
From the first chord, you delve into reverberations that give the song depth, signalling that what’s to come is not a superficial song. The soft and subtle details harmonise a song that escalates in its psychedelia and distortion, almost like the progression of a degenerative disease. Casey’s deep and powerful voice invites you to immerse yourself in her words, in her notes. It’s a story that gradually unravels, a story of gradual corruption reflected in the song’s tones and harmony.
All the sounds are electronic, playing very well with the combination between them. Without a doubt, Casey knows how to craft a psychedelic and harmonic piece at the same time, and she shows us that the coexistence of both elements (naturally antonyms) is something possible.
But make no mistake, this is not a song of despair, but rather an ode to the beauty in pain. Despite the song narrating a story that could originate from horror, the song conveys a beautiful sadness, a relationship with existence capable of finding beauty in pain.
In the song recorded in Austin, Texas and produced by Darwin Smith, the influence of Billie Eilish is noticeable in its gentle construction of tragic beauty and a rather hypnotic style. Moreover, Casey is a pole dancer, and her music has a degree of sensuality that evidences this influence.
So, if you’re ready for a musical journey that will take you through profound emotions and leave you with a deeper appreciation of the complexity of emotions and their compatibility, then “Favorite Lover” by Casey Urban is the song you need to listen to.
Don’t miss out on this musical gem, it won’t disappoint...
