It seems a shame to judge The New Society based on the merits of their latest tack Feeling Ways. Musically the arrangement is solid in this Pop, Rap Hip Hop track that’s fuelled with an infectiously smooth flow and brought to life through it’s funk baselines, the rhythmic vocal ability being the ultimate cherry on the cake, yet I can’t help but feel that songs about grandiosity have been done to death. The disappointment in this track hit me like a brick when It came to the chorus as I waited for a hint of lyrical originality.
The Texan based duo that forms The New Society uses their inspirations from Calvin Harris and Drake for their tracks, but what use is that inspiration if you’re just going to churn out tracks about superficiality?
I would love to hear a track from this band that are singing REAL emotion and feeling that you can get behind and immerse yourself in the track rather than indulging them in their delusions of gangster grandeur.
