Full of Keys - All The Roses
Pop, Electro For some reason, the artist Full of Key's debut single 'All The Roses' bring notions of games to me. The reversed sounds used as an intro for the track brings me right back to playing the hugely successful indie game Braid and the singer Anni's voice and the general song structure of "All The Roses" reminds me so very much of Lisa Miskovsky's "Still Alive" used as theme song for Mirror's Edge. This is of course a good thing, since this brings me good feelings as well paving ground for giving you an idea of what this new artist sounds like.

The production quality is perfect, you would not have expected otherwise when Robin Palmqvist and Chad Neale (producers for Moby and Sting) have done their part. Anni's voice is sharp, edgy and smooth as silk, all at the same time. Even though the soft electronic pop melodies are soothing, the focus still rests on the great vocals.

Mister Monell (Alice in Videoland) has made a more pure electro remix of the track, upping both the tempo and beat. Even though it will work well on dance floors, it still sounds a bit weird when you are taking a pretty slow track trying to make it club friendly. It feels forced and already from the start it is clear as a blue sky that the track was not meant to be in that pace.

I'm not sure if Full of Key's will attract the Brutal Resonance readers, it's more much pop than electro. What I am sure of though is the fact that Full of Key's is a highly interesting artist and will most certainly be appreciated, if not within the electro subgenre, indeed within the general pop media. I for one will follow Full of Key's undertakings.
