“Hammer” is the latest single from one of the most powerfully smooth voices in Pop right now. Imagine a voice as magnetic as you’d hear from the 90s Pop icons put to a sublime Indie Rock Pop beat.
As Hammer balances soul and charisma, it’s impossible not to be snared by the catchy hooks created by the Nashville, TN artist. Many Pop artists skate by with the assistance of autotune, but with the perceptible level of strength in the vocal dynamics of Mandy Brooke there’s no need to augment the organic talent.
The up and coming artist’s ability with a fretboard also adds a distinctive dynamic to her sound. Instead of moving through the same tired old chord progressions her strumming style adds layers of hypnotic rhythm to Hammer.
Hammer was released on February 22nd 2019, head on over to Spotify to check it out for yourselves. If you figure out a way to get the chorus out of your head, let me know.
