Changing Face by Tiyto: Review
“Changing Face” is an energizing and evocative track with phenomenal summertime tunes, as listeners may say. The quartet of Tiyto intended for their latest project to have understated yet melancholic undertones. This album, their second, features a blend of atmospheric rock, electronic instrumentation, and smooth, soulful R&B courtesy of DJ Mustard and the distinctive sounds of our all-time favorite, The Neighborhood.
When you hear the ear-catching rocking guitar riffs on this, perfectly mixed with a tasteful splash of R&B, you can really tell that Tiyto put a lot of heart and soul into their performance-oriented tunes. So, you can expect to be mesmerized from the very first second. The vocalist, Stuart Waters, who is also the band’s talented keyboardist, has a unique delivery in the way he sings out the lyrical expression. Accompanied by Max McKinstry’s authentic guitar tunes and Jake’s booming bass, the music wraps itself up into a gifted piece. Not to mention the one instrumentalist that steals the thunder with his snares and kicks on the drum, Rob Waters proves to be the invigorating one.
By fusing parts of ambient rock with deep electronica, the band meticulously cultivated and achieved a one-of-a-kind quality in this incredible piece. The result is outstanding. Even if you’re unfamiliar with its genre (and given the album’s range, it could be just about anything), “Changing Face” will sweep you off your feet with its positive energy and thrilling excitement.
