With 60,000 views and counting since it's debut on January 17th, the video for Mardi Gras' latest single release is making waves, and I'm not surprised! Out of all the songs I've heard since discovering this Italian band, From Zero To One is one of the strongest, and most powerful.
Although the song has been out for a while, I have held back on doing a review because I didn't (in the best possible way) know what to write about this track, that I had a pretty instant love for. I downloaded it after first listen, turned up the volume, and hit the repeat button- which probably tells you all you need to know, but I will go on.
In 'From Zero To One' Mardi Gras has created a catchy, soaring pop/rock song, that's as slick as it is edgy. There are softer vocal moments, and a focus at the start on acoustic/piano in the mix, with the electric rock elements front and centre later on.
To add to the creativity there are some poignant spoke word parts in English, Estonian, and Italian that just strengthen this band's reputation for creating atmospheric, memorable songs. It really is a beautiful song, it makes me feel good when I'm having a bad day and has depth in the vocals and music that kept me engaged all the way through. The question is, how will they top this with their next release?
