SINGLE REVIEW: Zipper by Corvaa

Electronica newcomer Corvaa releases ‘Zipper’ as a single set to be added to playlists everywhere…dance halls reverberate with the thumping, electrifying sound that the artist is becoming known for. There’s something to love for everyone with this track, and the future of this rising star looks bright  in the world of EDM. Read on for more on ‘Zipper’ from Corvaa.

Deep house music sees a notable addition to an already jam-packed 2016 with the release of Corvaa’s single entitled ‘Zipper’. The track melds a traditional house beat pattern with more flighty, surreal synth leads and pleasant, melodic vocals. Electronic Dance Music as a genre often times blurs the lines between its multiple sub-genres, but in the case of Corvaa’s Zipper, all of the hallmark signs of a classic house song are there. The strong 4/4 beat with a heavy kick, the distinct crescendos and heavy drops…nothing is left out. Short of being too heady and loose, the track gives the listener a license to relax and enjoy a brief trip to a hot dance floor somewhere in the Mediterranean.

Corvaa as a music project was started in September of 2013, and for being such a nascent group, these artists are really making a name for themselves. They hail from Piraeus, Greece, and currently produce their music out of a studio based in New York. Their website is located at http://www.corvaamusic.com.

As for the track ‘Zipper’ itself, the lyrics generally stay within the lines of EDM subject matter. Dancing, allure, passion and release are all themes in the vocals, and they don’t seem too overproduced, either. This is probably because the track was engineered by MicAngelo, a very well-known name in the electronic dance music scene. A lot of house music tracks go over the top trying to appeal to the target demographic of party goers, and even though the effort by Corvaa to do this is fairly obvious in ‘Zipper’, it’s not so egregious that it takes away from the musical quality of the track. The leads are bouncy enough to keep the song lively and positive, and there are piecemeal guitar and piano parts that add a nice garnish to the focus of the song, which is obviously in the vocals.

“Pull my zipper, shut the lights, take my picture, if you like” is an obvious nod to sexual expression, and this is done unapologetically by Corvaa on ‘Zipper’. The beat hits at a tempo that makes you want to move, whether that’s all alone in your bedroom or on the dance floor with a partner. Fans of more traditional house music will appreciate this track because of its allegiance to the roots of electronica, while Corvaa’s existing fan base won’t be let down by this release. Even though there weren’t many risks taken with this track, the right mix of bright sounds and pulsing rhythms makes for a welcomed addition to what EDM fans will be listening to this summer. The only way that Zipper could be improved upon is if its length was doubled; it’s that well-crafted.
