Nominee - "Stay"
Written by: Kassandra
Holy. Shit. The music gods DO answer prayers. Looking for something new and exciting? You just found it! Nominee has released a new single from their upcoming EP and it is PHE-NOM-INAL. Their latest track, 'Stay', may also be the greatest.
Comprised of so many spectacular elements, it's no doubt that this band will be taking the music world by storm with the release of their EP. This track soecifically was amazing in every way.
A sick drum beat kicks the song into overdrive in the first few seconds, then the simple, but effective guitars come in. If you're not hooked already, then wait until the lyrics start.
This track has so many great things going for it from the get-go. Musically speaking, everything works cohesively and in such a way that you can't help but to nod your head to the beat. Lyrically speaking, the chorus and verses are easily to follow along with and sing to.
The metaphorical gestures are not subtle, but they give a clear mental image of what the song is about. The words, "I was holding it together about the time you noticed me falling apart at the seams" is a repeated phrase that makes you wonder if that's what the title, 'Stay' is referring to.
As a whole, this song is brilliant. The rock vibe it gives is strong which makes it a feel-good track that anyone can relate to. The a-capella bit towards the end of the song really drives it home and ties it all together nicely.
The song earns a 10 out of 10 for it's creativity and overall presentation. Keep an eye out for new music coming soon from Nominee! You do NOT want to miss it!
