It is so easy to get lost completely in this lovely and enchanting music that singer-songwriter Silas Funk has conjured up here; “Drive” is the first single off of his upcoming debut album titled “SUGARFIXX” which will officially be released on September 28, 2023, on all streaming platforms.
Silas initiates this song with a distinct utopian feel. The message feels romantically inspired, with neat flourishes in the background ranging from the guitar licks to clever basslines that flesh out the warmth of the words.
Nods to 90s trance pop emerge in this luxuriously stylish arrangement. When the synth beat hits, it is akin to an old-school pop tune, complete with a sense of romanticism right in the core of the nimble chord shifts.
The unfolding vision of this song carries a sense of warmth and the captivating lead voice of Funk gives it this spellbinding sensibility, one that feels kaleidoscopic.
“Drive” has a late 70s and early 80s club atmosphere. It all works, from the neat guitar riffs that intertwine in an indie-pop fashion to the striking bass that keeps things interesting throughout.
This track captivates with its potent lyrics and irresistible performance.
Another strong highlight of the song is the exceptional music video that was created entirely using the new AI software called Kaiber. The visuals are simply out of this world and really fit into the track’s essence and narrative.
This anime-inspired music video complementing this moving song is at the core of this release because it supplements the themes highlighted by the track itself and takes the overall message to a new and higher level.
The music sways rhythmically, its catchy, quotable lyrics inviting you to sing along – a delightful treat for your ears.
Silas Funk has promised to release a new single every three weeks this summer until the new album is released on September 28th.
