Aluminum by Powerwalk: Review
Brace yourselves folks, we’re taking a trip down memory lane to 1980s pop tunes. Powerwalk’s fun and exciting song “Aluminum” is a love letter to the aforementioned era, and popular hits from that time. The act combines nostalgic synthesizers, beats, singing, and just an overall retro vibe that takes you back to a much simpler time.
“Aluminum” is something special. The song’s got a “feel-good” aura about it that arrives with vocal spirit and instrumental strength. Powerwalk brings back the nature of music from the golden age of synth, and their resonance is a remarkable feat to witness. There’s a pleasant tone in their melody, and it blends excellently with the vocalist’s charm. The cadence has a lovely thrill and will put a smile on your face. Just give it a shot, I assure you when the drums kick in, the vocals are in full drive, and the synths reverberate, you’d instantly feel elated. Aside from this, the transitions and chord changes in “Aluminum” are stunning. It’s got the perfect arrangement that does not add too many notes and is a balanced sequence.
I don’t know about you, but the 1980s were such a magical period in time. I’m a 90s kid myself but grew up with influences from other eras. Especially when it came to musical trends. With that being said, Powerwalk captures the essence of the 80’s synth and new wave pop and does a terrific job in doing so.
