Miss Freddye - 'Something To Believe In'

Miss Freddye - 'Something To Believe In'

'Something To Believe In' is an excellent combination of many instruments blending to create an impressive atmosphere that is super-pleasing to the ear. Beginning with a stylized piano sound, sustaining every note, the organ and strings form their place around it. The strong yet relaxing voice of the exceedingly talented and experienced Miss Freddye gives a performance with prevailing energy. Gradually building up the strong genre vibe through verse, we are accompanied by a vibrant guitar, and mild beats and percussion. The bass gives depth to the song as it flows towards the chorus. The wide and dynamic ensemble of Miss Freddye's vocals with a spark of harmonies and long-tailed reverb uplifts the song and boosts the emotional connection. The voice at its highest peak of energy joins with a guitar solo to add more flavour. Beautiful variations show the brilliance of the composition and build a medium that connects this song and meaningful lyricism to the listener.
