It’s Not My Fault by ellakate: Review
“It’s Not My Fault” is an energizing alternative-pop number by charming artist Ella Greenbaum AKA ellakate. The melodic facets of ellakate’s song are pretty edgy, and there’s a moody aura about it. With her roots in Atlanta, Georgia, and a distinct musical upbringing, the musician’s prowess is present in the infectious melody of “It’s Not My Fault.”
From the very first note, a subtle symphony plays while a fat bass makes an entrance. But on top of everything else is the resonating voice of ellakate. At times soft-spoken, and other times putting on a melodic outfit that screams attitude, her voice is the perfect combination of dark pop meets punk. Analyzing the instrumental bits gave me the indication that the production quality was top-notch. Especially in more bass-heavy and distorted guitar sequences. Ella’s vocal lines were still prominent and blended excellently into each instrument’s cadence. Speaking of cadence, once the track’s tempo switches to its percussive flow, the rhythm just amps up to ten. Afterward, it’s a full-blown punk-pop piece with exciting guitar riffs accompanying a strong force.
As a singer myself I try my very best in deciphering singing patterns. At times you’ll hear a song that chances are will have an uncanny resemblance with another pop hit. Fortunately, I felt enamored while hearing the unique compositional essence of Ella’s “It’s Not My Fault.” The experimental vocal lines attempt to form a hook and it had a fairly original tone.
