Sebastian Mikael-Take Me Higher

The introduction to this very talented upcomer came just over a month ago, and now comes the follow up release to solidify that ‘one to watch’ status.

It’s a bright, uptempo pop track that’s definitely as good as anything from that genre in recent months. The production is perfect for a mainstream breakout, combining a midtempo percussion with soft yet urgent key hits and anchoring itself around the synth-heavy hook. The vocal performance is as good as the aforementioned introductory release, with Mikael allowed to show off his range from the gentler work in the verses to the superbly-executed high notes on the hook. The best comparison I can make is somewhere between an early Bruno Mars and Lloyd, and this is a chart-friendly track that should have some appeal to the purists too.
