Haiden. Sexy is the look and sound. This song, "Okay ok k", has all the makings of an awards show performance. It has a modern classical sound and a broadway style dramatic relationship struggle over the minutest of details. What else makes better entertainment?
With just a taste of Timberlake, and vocals that stick on the beat like a Porsche on the pavement, it’s a 90s fusion with a full order of pop and a pinch of…rap? I struggled to leave that out and every time I listened to this song that word is what rose up, so, I’m leaving it in. The hook is charming and hypnotic. The part that I absolutely loved is the modern take on classical music sound. I love classical music. We all do even if you don’t think you do. It’s in every movie score, and cartoons, and so many TV shows since - well forever. This sounds like an epic modern presentation that I really appreciated. Then we get emotionally charged vocals with a tremendous falsetto.
The sound is sharp as a knife and is, “radio ready”. The single artwork is appropriate because Haiden carries the force of a boy band but all by himself.
Lyrically the song is a great representation of how it’s easy to be told we are the problem, just because we can’t decipher the manic methods of a partner’s complicated text expressions.
Well produced and mixed and the overall presentation is excellent!
