Nate Ruess’ New Song “Great Big Storm”’s Forte Isn’t The Chorus: Listen
Nate Ruess’ first solo album “Grand Romantic” is out in a month in the US (on June 16 to be precise) and as release date approaches, more ‘buzz’ singles are liberated. The latest? “Great Big Storm”, which is available for individual purchase as of today (May 11) on all major digital music platforms.
The song is one of those strange ones in the sense; the melody is absolutely ‘delicious’, the pre-chorus is like “candy” to my ears, but the chorus is a bit flat – in my humble opinion. It’s just a bit uninspired and predictable. In any case, verses and pre-choruses make up for the excitement lost in the chorus and make “Great Big Storm” a pretty decent song. Oh, and how to describe the sound/production of Nate’s new ‘buzz’ track? Very Fun.-esque of course. Evidently, right?
What about the lead single from “Grand Romantic”? If you haven’t heard it yet, it’s called “Nothing Without Love” and in all honesty it isn’t doing an amazing job but a really ‘just okay’, slightly mediocre one (certainly not up to par to what Fun. used to do). As of this post, “NWL” sits at #55 on the iTunes main chart below Carly Rae Jepsen’s “I Really Like You” or Omarion’s “Post to Be”.
