Brown Eyes by Tasha Blackmore: Review
Tasha Blackmore comes back with a new direction in her sound with the first release of the year, Brown Eyes.
The song revolves around the theme of drowning in one’s eyes and losing all senses. The artist herself explains, “I wrote Brown Eyes around 9 years ago and I’m really excited to finally release it! Brown Eyes is a song about falling for someone you know deep down is bad for you. You already know the second you set eyes on them, it’s going to end with your heart broken and their heart just fine, yet you can’t turn away from them.
Brown Eyes is the first single I’ve released that has a guitar-driven pop-rock sound. I chose this sound as I feel is describes the lust, chaos, anxiety and the echoes in your mind that comes with encountering the same kind of connection with someone.”
Following up Tasha’s last year’s hit single High Time, Brown Eyes hints at a change in her sound. This country-pop artist’s new electric guitar and kick drums-driven new song wears the leather jacket of a rock song but still doesn’t stray away from its country roots. The layering acoustic guitar and the catchy hook carry that Nashville vibe ever so subtly, it becomes more apparent every time you hear it. Transitioning their sound from country-pop to country-rock or pop-rock territory where artists often struggle is with the vocals but not Tasha. Her vocals on this track is more forward with the catchiness of a pop song and the air and energy of a rock anthem. We rarely see a transition in the vocals as graceful as this one. This song would fit perfectly cruising down the highway by the countryside or just your morning commute to wake you up.
