Hurley Mower – Metronome (feat. Manasseh)
Lowly Palace! YES!! Hurley Mower releases a future R&B track that teeters more on the electronic side. The single is called Metronome and features Manasseh, a singer/songwriter from Chicago. Hurley Mower is also from Chicago. With dynamic low-end frequencies and Manasseh’s soulful vocals, this track gets DOWN. What I found unique about the track was the heavy use of sub-bass and arpeggiated analog synths, giving the R&B vocals more of an electronic backing than your more pop-leaning R&B. I was also impressed with the dynamic arrangement, changing up the beat around the 1:44 mark. Keeps me on my toes. The entire vibe is velvety, with easter egg electronic high-ends that supply the cherry-on-top.
The song is perfect for chillin’, lovin’, studyin’, relaxin’, coolin’, droolin’ or just straight foolin’. Hurley Mower has close to 4 million streams on Spotify. Catch him while he’s heating up!
Hurley Mower sent along a quote with the track…
“Manasseh and I just had fun with this song. Its nature embodies the mood we had during the couple of sessions where it was created. Whether it’s the giggles, or the dialogue in the middle of the song, or the unconventional form with the tempo change, the idea was to not take ourselves too seriously. We let everything happen naturally, which resulted in a song that enters an unchartered territory.”
