Murphy, an artist born in Canada, is making significant strides in the music industry with each upcoming chart-topper. Her daring pop tunes have already started to captivate listeners, causing them to hum along as she prepares for the next major milestone in her promising career. Despite being just 21 years old, Murphy has already impressed industry professionals with her impressive expertise and magnetic sound. She crafts compelling melodies and heartfelt lyrics entirely on her own, captivating fans with her stream-of-consciousness style that resonates deeply with their emotions and experiences. She recently released "Beside You," which also features Soloman Matthew and Outertone.
The track sounds contemporary and modern. It begins with an airy pad and techno-like vocal samples. There's piano and vocals that come in. The mood is melancholy, but you can feel a build coming. The hook comes in under a minute as the artist repeats the line "I'll be right beside you."
The second verse is handled by a different artist and sounds great as well. I liked the different vocal approaches. The song quickly returns to the hook and then goes into a breakdown section where both vocalists sort of go back and forth, leading to the most explosive moment.
The hook repeats and feels like a mantra. Some of the vocals seem spliced up, and synths come from every direction in the stereo field. The song ends with some rain and is quite powerful.
I will say this is indeed a good choice for a single. It's catchy, easy on the ears, and is the type of song you can put on almost anytime and enjoy. It's club-worthy, it will make you work out harder, and it's also a song where you can explore the textures and nuances with a nice pair of headphones. Recommended.
