Ahead of the June 15th release of her new EP, Walking With Dogs, El Mar has released her second single off of the album, “The Best One”. The track features a wonderfully breezy rock/pop sound that slowly builds as the track goes on. Think Natalie Imbruglia meets Best Coast with just a little Jimmy Eat World (don’t make that face at me…listen closely).
Hearing tracks like “The Best One” is always a treat in 2018. I hear the argument more and more lately that “pop/rock is dead” and people aren’t as interested in conventional musicianship anymore. I respectfully reject that notion considering all of the mediums we have in today’s world to listen to music on. Those of us who truly love music understand that Top 40 – although necessary – is only a minuscule portion of this vast and beautiful world of music.
El Mar just simply makes good music. There are no gimmicks, no beat drops, no choreography (at least that I am aware of). It’s just music in its purest form and most of the time, that is all you need.
Make sure to mark your calendars for the release of El Mar‘s Walking With Dogs EP on June 15th and listen to “The Best One” below!
