SINGLE REVIEW: Mane – What If The Love Dies
Adelaide songstress Mane has had a crazy year which has seen her extensively touring Europe and the UK while working on new music and she is now finally heading home to kick off a East Coast Australian tour. Her new single “What If The Love Dies” is a bold and mysterious track that delivers a big chorus with honest lyrics. The songs begins with just a prominent strumming of a guitar accompanied by her raspy and theatrical vocals. The chorus then drops this industrial beat which incorporates a late 90’s nostalgic synth in the post chorus. It’s very groovy and shifts the songs mood away from the mysterious vibe it begins with. The production and the vocal delivery is similar to Montaigne’s theatrical and dramatic indie-pop and also offers old Kimbra vibes. The dark pop track asks the age old question.. what if the love dies? She doesn’t shy away from speaking her mind and serves you emotion and genuine empowerment. This is a strong track that shows a growth in her songwriting and production skills compared to her previous releases. The bold hook will be instantly stuck in your head and have you constantly thinking about those unique vocals.
