Powerful vocals and strong lyrics make for a great song, just hear the latest song from musical group “ABQ”.
Takes So Long’ is a deliberately perfect indie pop song, and a fantastic choice for a debut single. The classic structure is concentrated around a gloriously catchy chorus, Shevlin’s distinctive and captivating voice has a hint of Irish twang, the driving guitar and drums providing the perfect backing.
Musically, ‘Take So Long’ doesn’t stray too far from the norm, the staccato guitar in the verse opening out to big rock riffs in the chorus, the drums understated until the chorus, the slightly delayed beat seemingly a trademark of the stadium-esque indie pop acts. The combination makes the listener feel like they already in the O2 surrounded by confetti cannons.
