There was no forgetting Ross Avant’s ability to create a striking single after hearing “House of Blues”, but there was also no preparing for the emotional sting of their latest single “It’s Only for You”. If anyone is taking notes on how to create the perfect ballad, hit play and grab a pen.
There will be very few questions on how Ross Avant came to be a critically acclaimed composer once you ingest the effervescently pensive progressions which are intricately layered into their latest single. The piano-led semi-orchestral instrumental arrangement treats you to an ethereal soundscape which Ross Avant’s voice naturally and magnetically dominates. I suppose it’s only right that I disclose that I definitely didn’t remain dry-eyed as It’s Only for You unfolded. Don’t judge me. I’m only human.
It’s Only for You will undoubtedly remain one of the most visceral singles I will hear this year. If you think that the National, and Bon Ivor hit an emotive chord with their music, the NYC-based artist may just throw some surprises your way.
