Artist Review: Regynna Soo
WeLoveYourSongs Page: http://weloveyoursongs.com/artist/5231
Well, this page is not in English…Hey there Translate button! Alrighty, not I can learn about this reggae / pop / funk artist! I mean, the caps lock doesn’t help, but whatever. At least I can read it!
Regynna is from Rio De Janeiro. I think. The translation is a bit rough. It seems that she’s supported herself by selling drinks on the beach, and has two dreams: being a housewife with her own business, and a singer. She got this music together herself and worked hard for it. That’s about what I’m getting here.
Well, talk about taking me by surprise. “Brightness” starts off with a very subtle reggae beat – I was expecting to get beat over the head with it. Despite the language barrier, music once again works its magic and I am hearing every bit of emotion she is putting out there. What an absolutely gorgeous arrangement to get us going.
“Downloaded and City” is another totally unexpected sound. It’s sort of like something out of a beach club, with some funk and synth mixed in. I would never consider this ‘reggae’ by normal standards, but hey, I’m also all for a genre expanding. I know I’m not hearing the words right, but I’m hearing “Who makes you happy? Who makes you funky?” and that just sounds like a fun song to me, even if the language is totally saying something else.
This next one, “Anyone,” seems to have some old school flair to it in recording style. It’s light and bright, the way Selena’s music used to sound. Everything is fairly crisp and flawless as it rolls on, but without a compute really being involved to make it so. It’s just an easy track to listen to overall.
“Talk and Cry” at least includes… well, a word, that I understand. “Africa,” eh? Now watch that not actually be what I think it is. This at least has a gentle swaying beat to it throughout that, with what seems to be a relatively simple way about it, at least word-wise. It’s kind of nice and simple from my perspective, honestly. Good times all around to be had.
And for our final song, “Single rachet” we get… lounge music? This is super light and smooth, especially when placed next to the more party-like songs. Talk about a versatile singer and band. I mean, I know it says “funk” in her description, but this was still pretty unexpected. And really cool
What a really lovely and fun set of music. This lady has got some kind of talent when, even through computer speakers, I can tell she’s be amazing live. She spans a variety and does it nearly seamlessly. Seriously, this is some music to be truly and completely impressed with.
