Singles Club: Adam Melchor + Big Fox + Mont Blvck
Adam Melchor's "I Choose You" is sentimental and sweet, a valentine to a lover with a vintage pop nugget sensibility. Melchor's lovestruck lyrics ("I choose you/out of billions of people we cut it down to two") are starry-eyed and smitten, his voice warm and honeyed against a lively swirl of sound. Forget the sleeve, with "I Choose You" Adam Melchor's wearing his heart all over the place.
“Some songs are hard to write about. They just move like a slow train, as if they had no intention of causing any big fuss or drama. But they are sincere, honest. Every word is carefully selected, every synthesizer questioned. And the more time you spend with them, the more you start loving them.” So says Charlotta Perers, AKA Big Fox, of latest single "All I'm Trying." The spellbinding song is steeped in a quiet majesty, the lyrics telling only half the story. Not only is this a love song, but a triumph of survival. And it's beautiful on both counts.
With naughty, simmering beats and a diabolical catchiness, LA's Mont Blvck creates some serious midnight magic with "Forget." From the duo's debut EP, Lost Tapes (so named after a robbery left them missing a whole lot of material), "Forget" piles on the sticky, come-hither-baby charm, a fantasy of addictive, magnetic temptation.
