That Place Of Serenity

MNEK “Every Little Word”

Uzoechi Emenike is remarkably fully formed as a singer and producer at 19 – his song have a youthful energy, but his creative choices are very sophisticated. His production on “Every Little Word” has a perfect balance of bounce and precision, and his vocal performance is controlled but not remotely fussy. The thing that really makes this song is such a simple decision – he repeats the phrase “every little word you say” in the chorus, but rather than keep it all about the same, he sings the words with the same phrasing but a slightly different tonality, with his voice going higher for emphasis. The music doesn’t follow suit, so you get this effect that in my mind reads kinda like a 3-D book where those words suddenly seem to leap off the page while everything else remains flat.

Buy it from Amazon.
