Sleuth – Make A Meal Out Of You (Review)

Check out this music review of the new single, ‘Make A Meal Out Of You’ released by Sleuth

Sleuth is an artist who recently released a brand new single titled “Make A Meal Out Of You.” This track begins with a lush vocal performance, filtered with a cool effect to really highlight the spontaneity and the energy of this track. Soon after, a distorted synth bass line pops to the forefront of the song, adding so much edge and really making for a darker, yet still catchy atmosphere. Sleuth has a beautiful voice, which really balances out with the dark, swaggering feel of the instrumental track, almost like a yin-yang relationship. This is the perfect bittersweet piece of music, as it is at times sultry and playful, and at others edgy and energetic. The drum beat is absolutely fantastic, with a bit of an R&B flavor. It really takes the song to a more exciting dimension, bringing the music to life with a twist.

Ultimately, this is a unique track that offers something special – If you are a fan of alternative music, don’t miss out!
