Some ballads have the ability to instantly draw you into the honest edge to the soundscape, but they’re few and far between; especially when you hit play on a track from a brand-new artist – why should we care what strangers have to say? But every now and again, you stumble across a sound so harmoniously and ethereally compelling you’re reminded of what a truly powerful track is. Which is exactly what happened when we checked out Sunny Birla’s latest single “These Words”.
While 80s ballads still retain a visceral pull, nothing quite compares to a soundscape which alludes to emotions which are so raw and fresh. Instead of using the usual orchestral and piano-led arrangement, Sunny Birla used a more acoustic Pop instrumental soundscape to set the perfect tonality giving These Words a Folk-style narrative feel.
