Cologne by Phoenix Mundy: Review
Phoenix Mundy is a gifted artist hailing from Bristol, UK. Her creativity sparkles throughout the track “Cologne”. It’s got a sensational guitar arrangement, that sounds very nostalgic. The bass notes being played are unique and offer a colorful background space where the music breathes new life into the artist’s sense of style. First and foremost, I would like to express my admiration for the chorus. It’s one of the catchiest, jam-packed arrangements I’ve heard in a while and has a very 90s Pop effervescence about it.
“Cologne” is bright, melodic, and dreamy all at the same time. The singer’s voice will captivate your soul. She has an amazing ability to balance between the higher notes, and the lower ones too. How she switches from two scales is brilliant and the instrumentation does not shy away from following her commanding voice. The guitar tone is a bit distorted, but not too much, as it reserves the elements of pop. The majority of the instrumentation is taken about with the bass guitar, which has a nice bouncy tone to it and is quite colorful to hear.
The chorus parts where she sings about pheromones and cologne are quite memorable. It’s not just the lyrics but the way her voice shifts into the tone of the words, it’s unique and quite breathtaking. Phoenix Mundy has shown her wonderful ability to compose a song that will truly speak to you, and resonate effortlessly.
