SINGLE REVIEW: Miracle by Anthony Kale

Emerging Australian music artist Anthony Kale recently reached number #1 on The Independent Radio Charts U.K. with his two singles Be Responsible and Without a Word, and he looks set to repeat that amazing feat with his new release Miracle. Anthony’s indelible brand of contemporary pop once again is utilised, blending unifying dance hooks with a heartfelt, spirited performance and a lyric which is as unapologetically love-obsessed as it is universally salient. With a remarkable tally of over 300,000 Spotify streams, Anthony’s Miracle promises to expand his audience reach while maintaining his fervent, global fanbase. Like a hybrid Enrique Iglesias, Adam Lambert and Phil Collins, Anthony’s style seamlessly fuses some of the major aspects of dance with the melodic weight of modern pop, absorbing a myriad of influences to arrive at an exuberant musical palette. With a swell of thunderous drums and a formidable chorus hook Miracle takes off, infusing dance sensibilities to inspirational high-powered pop. The verses remain typically understated, outlining the lyric’s direct and unmistakeably familiar observations; this is a love song after all, revealed from the point of view of the desirous, the shell-shocked admirer. Anthony manages to display a yearning that is neither excessive nor underdone, and in the process proves that he is as highly a proficient vocalist as he is an impressive songwriter. With lines such as, ‘I see her coming look my way my heart is beating like a freight train / she walks like an angel with that look in her eye my body’s aching I’m trying to find’, Anthony also exhibits an ability to transform his emotional struggles into vivid imagery, reinforcing the song’s core concerns while bringing to the surface the subtext. Captivating and seductive, Miracle reaches for a musical euphoria to untangle the indescribable nature of unattainable love. And it very nearly achieves it. Allusive and inviting in equal measure, Miracle just might turn out to be the smash hit of the summer.
