WE REVIEW THE NEW SINGLE FROM GEORGE LAWSON – END OF A GUN
George Lawson returns guns blazing with his vibrant new track, End Of A Gun.
The singer/songwriter from Lancaster brings forth skipping beats, gentle keyboards, and flourishing choruses. The overall subject matter of the single may sound dark with its title and themes. Through the vocal delivery and drums, this actually becomes a sunny and engrossing pop track.
Incorporating pop music with indie rock, soul, and r&b, the dancing drums and slick guitar riffs fill the track with life. Lawson’s sunny vocals provide eccentric warmth that blends beautifully with the keyboard.
The chorus is catchy from the ‘Ba bada’ interlude to the tempo and pitch change as the lyrics play on the End of a Gun line. The track is a radio-friendly piece that bursts with artistic creativity from the energy and variety the instrumentation brings. Lawson is the centerpiece whose emotions and sickly sweet vocals are so enticing and perfect for a vibrant pop/rock track.
Even the sunny samples of birds over delicate keys find it hard for the reviewer to be swayed by the dark lyrical themes. It’s a track you’d find at that sweet spot on a pop album in the middle. Whilst there are plenty of pop musicians with great vocals, Lawson brings something different to the table.
The multiple layers of varying instruments, the pitch shifts, and the high-energy mood make for a wonderful experience that brightens up any dreary day. Lawson has grabbed this reviewer’s attention with high anticipation for his future upbeat pieces.
