kaleidoscope by Randy Beth: Review
Since picking up the guitar and writing her own songs, Randy Beth has known that she has found her real calling. After making a debut last year, the New York-based singer-songwriter has continued to put out new music, most recently releasing the third track titled “kaleidoscope.”
The song is a pop hybrid with an R&B influence that sounds like it could have been released in the 2000s. The rugged, yet elegant melodies and arrangement strike a good balance that elevates the comforting voices while enticing you to follow along. The keyboards, synths, guitars, and drum beats all feel well-crafted and are laden with dozens of small sonic details across the records, giving the music a rich, mesmerizing, and luxurious soundscape. According to Beth, “Kaleidoscope” is a song about the joy that may be found in the most unexpected places. In the beginning, the background white noise and light-hearted giggles set the glistening atmosphere for the romance ahead. And as the story unfolds, the song progresses to the end with a heavenly choir, clapping sounds, and mellow piano, leaving a lingering impression that makes listeners want to press replay.
“She was a reflection of my light
On an autumn night
It was a surprise
Two hearts one bruise
Bury it inside to conceal my truth
I see myself in you”
I can’t wait for Randy Beth’s name to explode into stardom with the magnificent soundscape she was able to demonstrate in this single and her prior tracks. Check out the song below.
