Ebony Archer: Get Back Up

Ebony Archer: Get Back Up

ebonyarcher

If the sound of a neo-soul dance party meeting R&B sounds appealing, then Ebony Archer is going to be your jam. Ebony brings enthusiastic gospel-infused pop: taking musical influences from the 80’s and vocal influences of the 90’s. You’ll know exactly what I mean as soon as that synth line starts up, the drum build-up enters, and Ebony starts her sermon in “Get Back Up.”

Ebony is a talented singer without a doubt. Her voice is a little deeper than the R&B names that she’ll remind you of. I see that as a good thing. It gives her more character. As far as the music goes, the melodies, pace, and structure are all fitting. However, the dynamics could use a little re-working. I understand that the song is aiming to incorporate an 80’s feel. However, since production quality has improved dramatically since this era, adjustments could give the existing instruments some more life. The synth, for example, sounds a little dry: almost like a preprogrammed setting on an old keyboard. The bass doesn’t really boom enough. The drums feel a bit too computerized. It’s not that the track needs to be higher production so much as the existing production could be improved (The chimes at 2:22 and 2:37 really need to go though. Just a tad too 90’s).

No additional melodies are needed, the dynamics just need to be more…well, dynamic. The foundation for the song is strong and, most importantly, Ebony is a fantastic singer. Ebony doesn’t have to worry about dressing up her vocals through production because the talent is there. Keep the vocals the way they are, enhance the instruments a little more, and you’ll have yourself a fresh song reminisce of past eras (rather than restricted by them).
