Kipani released "Do We Have To Go," and I stayed home and listened on repeat!
The opening vocals are so 80s; they just immediately won me over. The beauty and smoothness of the initial blast of air are the wind in the sails of this song. 80s music is probably some of the best made, so pulling off that new wave-pop sound is a favorite of mine. The simplicity of a message about staying home is quintessential pop.
The element of this song that had the most impact is the supporting music. It is exceptionally well-engineered and performed. We have clean and full synths that were perfectly chosen, like wine and cheese. The feeling is a rock and roll orchestra. The instruments are punchy and full but sustained and crisp. Align this with the beautiful vocals and then keep it all simple with a message that hammers home the adage that "the best things in life are free".
"'Do We Have To Go" is a love letter to our introverted selves, to those who find the comforts of home the best medicine in a suffering world. - Kipani
Going out can suck. We spend our whole evening just deciding (this takes like 4 hours), then getting dressed; who's driving? - Is there parking? - come on, the list of prep is vast. Kipani calls it out - "Do We Have To Go" - and I loved that the song's "Do we have to go" - implies the truth of the feeling that going is going to be exhausting!!!!
Let's go back to this song's "seasoning." The melody and body of the song are also well-proportioned, and I enjoyed the belting and the song's "break" in the form of peppered vocals and beat swirls. Check this one out! Kipani's song "Do We Have To Go" is available now on all major platforms.
