Melanie C has an amazing new single
Music Reviews / /
Melanie C, the former Sporty Spice is back with a brilliant guest feature on Sons of Sonix's latest single 'Numb'. Check out our review.
After Spice Girls fell apart all of the members have had more or less successful careers, with Melanie C being the most constant one. She won our heart going solo with 'Never be the same again' and 'Turn to you', which topped UK Top 40, but since then she released 6 albums which never topped the charts but she never gave up. Some of her singles like 'Next best superstar' or 'First day of my life' went pretty well giving Mel C the chance to stay relevant yet live normal life.
Now she is landing her soothing vocal to a new single coming from Sons of Sonix. If you don't know them, they are a production duo from South London who have worked with Wretch 32, Tinie Tempah, Emelie Sande, Ariana Grande and so on.
Sons of Sonix ft. Melanie C release their stunning new track ‘Numb’, available to download now. Having met through their shared publisher, Melanie and the Sons Of Sonix hooked up in LA to write the song, after having worked on other material for Melanie's forthcoming seventh studio album in London. They put the finishing touches to the beat laden, textured club sound of new single ‘Numb’ in May 2016."
As the statement says, 'Numb' is a textured club track, which sound wise is something like Major Lazer's 'Light it up' younger sister that is shy in some cute way. It still has the incredible power to make you dance, but the versatility of it is what makes it so amazing. You can easily hear it once you go to the club, when you want to 'warm up' and an hour later when the atmosphere reaches its peak you can hear again and simply love it. It is electronic, but the tropical sounds, nice mid-tempo baseline and the tamed down vocal of Mel C makes it cool and radio friendly as well.
