WE REVIEW THE NEW ALBUM FROM MISTY DRINX

Misty Drinx’s self-titled debut album is a delight for our ears with a blend of British charm and American influences. Born and raised in South London, Misty Drinx draws inspiration from his meetings with the vibrant music scene of late 70’s America, citing influences such as Hall & Oates, Michael McDonald, and Steely Dan. Strong from these diverse influences, the artist offers a refreshing take on classic pop, soul, and funk sounds in the form of nine original songs.

The album starts with “Oh I Love That Song!” and it couldn’t have a better name because I loved it from the first notes. With its psychedelic vibes, guitar solo, and synths, the track is reminiscent of the musical skills of Daft Punk. As the album unfolds, Misty Drinx invites us on a journey through laid-back summer vibes with tracks like “Damn That’s Cold”. Unlike its title, this song evokes the feelings of a road trip under the sun. If Goodvibes Sound and Chromeo collaborated together, the result would be a sound exactly like “Damn That’s Cold”.

Later on, we have “Keeper” and the album immediately takes a calmer turn. It represents the soulful side of Misty Drinx and the use of the harmonica brings an authentic touch, different from the previous tracks.

A few songs later, the album reaches its end with “What You Think You Know”, a perfect way to end this musical journey with a comforting send-off with its funky guitars and synth pulses. It is a great example of Misty Drinx’s signature sound – a fusion of catchy songwriting and sophisticated funk/soul-pop.

Throughout the album, Misty Drinx effortlessly blends nostalgia with modern flair, putting together catchy melodies and sophisticated arrangements for our ears’ greatest pleasure.
