The New Dark Pop Influenced Single "Party" by BONNIE PARKER
BONNIE PARKER is the musical project of songwriter Andrew Muccitelli, in collaboration with musician-producer Jack Severino and Alex Andrews. Conceptualized in 2018, BONNIE PARKER is an indie-rock project hailing from Los Angeles, CA. BONNIE PARKER's smashing single "Party" released on all services January 11, 2022
Being met with an aural journey and sinister giggles, the production in this track is on another spectrum. The dark, grunge textures add not just a level of power but authority. The pitched down vocals layered underneath Muccitelli's lead vocals and scream: showcase a level of production that is not just intricate and meticulous but textured so well that this song is kept interesting, yet complex and willing to take risks. The panning of breaths alternating between speakers adds not just to the song but pushes the audience to truly feel as if they are in the same room as the artist. The vocal leads within the 2:40 mark are nothing but incredible and haunting. The grunge, power, authority, guitar rifts, sinister backing lines, push the sound of this song to be one of the best of 2021. "Party" is an explosion of confidence and sensuality; a dance floor entryway paved by lipstick and synthesizers. Its shimmering and pounding rhythms lure listeners to the party, the afterparty, and the bedroom. On the Intersect Magazine Scale of 1-10, "Party" receives a 9.5/10 on sound.
"Party" is described as a "dark pop-influenced celebration of sensuality and confidence". We see nothing less with the deep lyricism and passion evoked in every word. BONNIE PARKER showcases a style of descriptive and honest lyricism we have not seen in such a long time:
If I come to your party/ Would you smear all my makeup?/ I want to be your doll/ If I come to your party/ Or maybe your hotel room/ We could have it all
The confidence and sensuality in these lyrics are radiating and we can only hope for more to come in the near future like this. With that, on the Intersect Magazine Scale of 1-10, "Party" receives a 9/10 on lyrics.
