Track Review: James Vincent McMorrow, ‘Get Low’
Irish singer/songwriter James Vincent McMorrow outdoes himself on “Get Low,” one of the promo singles for forthcoming album, ‘We Move.’
33-year old Irish alternative singer/songwriter James Vincent McMorrow returns with his third studio album, We Move. We Move is headed by single “Get Low.” Non-traditional, “Get Low” promotes We Move with a bang, truly building excitement for the album.
“Get Low” opens with a soulful, urban-pop oriented intro. Guitar truly triggers this sensibility. It incorporates a modern bag of tricks including vocal effects and hip-hop drum programming. 808s in a singer/songwriter song? Quite unique to say the least.
McMorrow delivers simply beautiful, expressive vocals. His tone is stunning. His vocals are never inhibited by the production work; he’s always the forefront. Additionally, the songwriting is memorable, and “Get Low” is anchored by a catchy hook.
Overall, “Get Low” is exceptional. It features a beautiful vocal performance by McMorrow. The production work is exceptional, soundly combining alternative, singer/songwriter, and urban styles. All in all, it’s well-written song with respectable lyrics and “ear” candy in regards to the palette of sounds.
