For those who do not know, Bowtye is an American singer and producer who recent released a single titled “Morning Wood”. This song was recommended to me by friend, and I decided to give it a chance. While it does have its noticeable flaws, I still enjoyed this song.
For a start, I give Bowtye mad props to putting out a self-produced track. I realize that self-producing isn’t too rare, but it always shows me that the artist likes to keep things personal, and put in extra effort to make the track dope. The beat was suiting to the track, with hard-hitting drums and a distant sounding lead that fascinates me as a listener.
My favorite part of this track is probably Bowtye’s voice, which sounds very well-developed. He also proved to me that he can come up with a solid melody, even though he tends to get repetitive after a while. The concept of the track is pretty cool too…he describes a foreign love (and this track happened to be released on Valentine’s Day).
The only big issue I have with the track is the mixing and mastering. The drum pattern drowns out the melody and vocals, making Bowtye difficult to comprehend. As I previously mentioned, he did sing the same refrain over and over, making the track tedious to listen to.
In conclusion, Bowtye proved to me that he is a talented singer, songwriter, and producer, though he still has his noticeable flaws. However, I am intrigued to listen to any solo project he has, as the potential here is extraordinary.
