Manelik is an alt.rock artist influenced by Imagine Dragons and Coldplay. This captivating EP opens on the title track which features an intriguing introduction and an epic anthemic sound. With its excellent vocal harmonies and pulsating synth backing there is more than a touch.
“Be As You Are” has a more funky dance feel with supremely good backing vocals. There is also the added bonus of a well balanced mixture of spoken word and singing. “Stars” has an interesting bass line with a great melody and penetrating vocals . This song also features one of the many great hooks which abound on this recording.
“Twisted Life” is more of a ballad with an introspective feel . Interesting lines and thought provoking lyrics. “Insomnia” is once again very dance orientated and funky with a catchy melody . The track bounces along on a great hooky bass line and strong drums. This track also features a fabulous central funk breakdown. This a very impressive EP which hopefully acts as a curtain raiser for more great music.
