Katie Belle - 'Out Tonight'
Review written by Ionas Finser & Staff
“Out Tonight” opens with a relaxed guitar progression to set the tone for Katie Belle’s first verse. Belle’s voice is smooth and flexible, gliding through our ears like honey and piercing through to the heart like an arrow from Cupid. The artist leaves us starstruck as subtle percussion turns into crisp hi-hat rolls, high-impact kicks and tight snares to start the Chorus.
The producer of “Out Tonight” was aware of the fact that a good use of space is the key to a radio-ready masterpiece. An expert use of panning and reverb creates a world one can almost reach out and touch. Center to our ears are the beautifully delivered lyrics Katie Belle projects. The lyrics speak to the journey Belle takes to move on from the tormenting thoughts of past lovers and enjoy a night out in complete freedom.
The artist uses her words to inspire contagious self-confidence and lively contempt.
“You’re too close, might overdose / Take a hit I’m the one you want the most / Taste the words, let em slur, / Sip the flame down like the way it burn”
Katie Belle has created a song that is perfect for the dance floor, yet also acts as a refreshing anthem one can belt out while cruising down the highway.
Step inside the world of “Out Tonight,” and experience the freeing sensation of masterful music and catchy lyrics. It’s time for the music industry to move back and watch as Katie Belle does her thing.
