CD REVIEW: The Look by MkX

MkX rules the internet once again with his new release ‘The Look’. Enjoy the music and mend your broken spirit, regain confidence and self-respect.

The progressive development of fusion music in recent times with a sheer inclination to express in front of a wider audience has inspired many new music artists to showcase their talent and competence in their own voice. ‘The Look’ is one of such artistic creation by the extremely talented singer MkX.

MkX has been producing music for some time and now the newly released song ‘The Look’ is one of his best recent works that has hit the internet gravely. MkX has shown his versatility in writing, singing and even arranging music for the song. This song portrays his knowledge over music and his knack for expressing his thoughts into words efficiently.

The music is free-flowing and pronounced. The song starts on a subtle note emphasizing more on the background vocals which creates a flow for MkX to start with his song. Though the song is an audio track, the digital effect and the rich background score gives the resemblance of a live concert or a streaming video. Anyone listening to the song could easily find oneself brooding over the scenario that this song tries to devise.

The lyrics of the song is original, meaningful and punchy. It has an aura of its own and it is difficult for the audience to ignore its effect. The back vocals are strong and high-pitched which keeps flowing throughout the song. The instrumental variations with the song’s slow progression are impressive. MkX has a distinct voice which is equally strong and expressive.

The song continues for the duration of merely three minutes but the effect of the heart-wrenching lyrics and its balanced yet engaging musical framework keeps playing in the mind, long after the song is over. MkX efficiently creates an effective fusion of pop music, hip-hop, electronic, future bass and trap production which is well-tuned, strong and memorable melody. As like as his earlier songs MkX has again grown with his concept and the way they relate to real life scenarios.

MkX has precisely shown confidence and undeterred self-esteem whenever he had mouthed the chorus for his song. The lines ‘I’m gonna give you the look’ or ‘Reading your face like a book’ grabs the audience attention at the very moment and they spontaneously hum the words and start tapping their feet to the catchy tune. But even with the ‘feel-good’ melody, the song does bring the deep soulfulness of longing and seclusion.

Equivalent to his writing styles in the previous songs MkX has kept his ‘X’ factor prominent. Just as he always said his songs are inspired by his own life stories but again they are not meant for anyone particular. Anyone who lends an ear to his compositions would easily relate to the concepts of love, heartbreak, longing, and loneliness, just what the song tries to signify.

MkX has always regarded music as an art which has powerful healing properties. ‘The Look’ also has the power to uplift any broken spirit and bring back the lost confidence and self-respect.
