Aloha – Vero (Produced by Chuck Strangers)

Aloha – Vero (Produced by Chuck Strangers)A laid-back song that has been very well mastered. Aloha is a lazy Sunday afternoon tune.

The vocal layers work very well, although, some of the vocals are a wee bit flat in some spots.

I think the spoken word at the end really makes the song. The lyrics are pretty cool too – including some head-nods to other songs.

Tell me Annie, are you okay?

The drumming and keyboard reminds me of an Incubus song called Aqueous Transmission – an equally layered and relaxing song. Both Aqueous Transmission and Aloha use a similar technique of having instruments sound like breathing. The Incubus song uses violins to have that sort of ‘in-out’ rhythm, Aloha uses layered vocals in the chorus.

Very well done. Check them out:
