When I first read the artist’s name, as I was about to click on his Soundcloud page to listen to his track, I must admit, I was expecting something completely different. The artist’s moniker led me to assume this was going to be some kind of electronic music or hip-hop with a…well, punchy tone!
However, I was really pleasantly surprised when I found out that Mon Cheri is far from what I was assuming I’d find! The track is a stunning piano composition, which makes me think of the work of artists such as Ludovico Einaudi or Alexandre Desplat, just to mention but a few. Punchie is arguably an accomplished pianist, and this track stands as a testament of the artist’s incredibly gifted musicianship and prowess with the instrument. The song has a sweet, soft and direct tone, which grows in intensity and swings seamlessly from featuring a few, quite note, to entrancing listeners with a waterfall of melodic, swirling notes that are almost dancing in the air!
