Released on February 18th, the debut track “Tomorrow” from Townsville boy Alex Oram is turning heads and getting asses shaking.
Reminiscent of the grand scale sounds of Swedish House Mafia and Avicii, the track has an elegant energy and propulsive production elements that create a spark in the bold melody. Drawing inspiration from Calvin Harris, The Bloody Beetroots and Avicii, the 19 year old Med student has created a track that has the potential to ignite dance floors across the nation.
It’s clear that the young producer has got his sights set on big things, declaring he is “Bringing back melody and meaning to the dance music scene” and good on him. That’s a big claim and a hard statement to follow but at least there’s more (or as much) heart in this track as there is commercial appeal.
“Alex has honed in on the perfect blend of melody, vocals and soothing sounds to get your head moving while taking you on a journey full of feeling and emotion.”
For me the biggest let down of “Tomorrow” is the vocals because it sounds to me like Aaron Horscroft is slightly off pitch at points, particularly in the first line; however, mastered at the illustrious 301 Studios in Sydney, I’m not really one to comment on mastering.
Signed to emerging Aussie label GrowYourOwn//Music, “Tomorrow” is a solid first offering from Alex Oram. The more I listen, the more it grows on me and I can only assume that there’s sure to be more exciting things coming out of this guy in the future.
