Drown by Connor Terrones: Review
Connor Terrones, a native of Denver, Colorado, is on a mission to conquer the music world with his exceptional musical taste. He owes his influence to artists like James Brown, John Coltrane, J Dilla, D’Angelo, and many others. His most recent single, “Drown,” is a strong illustration of his artistry, and it was just released not too long ago.
We all need a little help sometimes. Sometimes, all you need to make a breakthrough or get through a challenging obstacle is a helping hand from someone else. Connor wrote the song “Drown” in an attempt to seek help in whatever way he could, even if it meant offering something in return for it. Terrones’ conversational delivery of the song’s words is a key element in the song’s overall narrative effectiveness. Meanwhile, he lets the song’s fusion of genres reflect the sense of panic and chaos he’s experiencing. Listeners are caught up in frantic layers of different synthesized elements and pads in the background. And, about midway through the song, the music smoothly transitions from electronic pop to a more jazzy, funky beat, switching synths for electric guitar riffs. If by any chance Terrones was trying to bargain, it seems more like a plea at this point than a negotiation. It’s fascinating to see all of the places the artist takes us.
With so many distinct traits, “Drown” will be a fun and colorful asset to your playlist. If you want to check out the music and Connor Terrones, it’s accessible on all major streaming sites.
