Yonas Campbell - Chess, Love & War
Yonas Campbell is a new singer/songwriter based in North London. Previously, Campbell had released his debut EP, Another Side of Paradise, a four-track release, which had a good review on Pitch Perfect. Now the artist is back with his latest single “Chess, Love & War,” which is a departure from the acoustic, folk sound of his initial release. Here, Campbell dives into a great indie rock/pop rock sound that recalls in my mind both The Beatles and Paolo Nutini. In the end, it’s Campbell’s great vocal styles that really spoke to me.
Just under five minutes, “Chess, Love & War” is an exploration of a couple’s relationship during New Year’s Day. Grabbing hold of the opportunity to turn their relationship into something more, things don’t end well and the track delves into how the couple tries to work out their relationship.
An indie track that rocks out with poppy embellishments and hooky riffs, Campbell’s sugary vocals are the catalyst to this track. A smooth blend through and through, I loved the dynamism of this track, with lyrics that delicately talks about a couple’s topsy-turvy relationship with moving music in the background. This is a combination that can’t be missed!
From beginning to end, this track has all the makings to become a hit. If you’re a romantic at heart, give this song a go. You won’t regret it!
