Bülow – Damaged Vol. 1 EP
Bülow’s new EP, Damaged Vol. 1 is FIRE ??? Plain and simple pop melodies with super dynamic percussion and a the kicker: Bülow’s voice. I speak a lot about vocals dancing around the instrumentation, and Bülow does it so well. Her voice isn’t overly distorted; it sounds real and authentic. Kudos to her producer.
The percussion elements are also a major reason why Bülow’s EP has been so successful. The drums give a hip-hop vibe to overarching pop melodies, which give the entire composition an extra punch behind the light melodies and Bülow’s soft vocals. This provides a nice contrast.
Not A Love Song has a bit more humph behind the production. With oscillating synths on the chorus, this single has more of a pop feel than the other two tracks. I’d consider Like This Guy and Lines more on the indie/pop side that contain elements of hip-hop percussion. All three songs are super well put together, simple, and not overly saturated with production distortion.
The vocal vibe has a sense of maturity, confidence, haunting, playfulness, sweetness, and realness. Her pitch doesn’t change much, giving the listener a consistent, chill vibe to the voice, allowing the instrumentation drive the emotional tone of each track.
Bülow is 17 years young, with her debut EP already amassing over 2.5 million views on Spotify. It’s only been out for a month. Bülow is perfect for rBeatzRadio’s international theme, as she grew up in 5 different countries: Canada, Germany, the UK, the US, and The Netherlands. She is currently finishing up High School in the Netherlands.
She also has a pretty unique way of conveying her music visuals on YouTube. Check out her newest visual art for Lines below. Also listen to her EP below on Spotify, follow, and save if you dig the music to help the artist.
