Harlequiin – ‘Like Wow’
Harlequiin has released the stunning single ‘Like Wow’ in October 2020. It is an electronic-pop release that will have the listener reaching for the repeat button.
A gorgeous beat opens the single. It is enticing and fully captivates the audience from the get-go. As the dreamy vocals drop, the single is in full flow. The vocal performance is filled with energy and passion; Harlequiin knows how to write a classic!
In addition, we adore the layered instrumentation that fills the sonic spectrum; it is busy and engaging. This adds a luscious colour to the piece.
There is a joyous feel to ‘Like Wow’ that shine through. The upbeat nature of the single is the tonic that we all need at the moment. Also, we adore the mix, production and master of this superb single, every part of the intelligent arrangement has its own space in the mix and works together as a cohesive collective.
