American singer Kane Brown has a new EP entitled Mixtape Vol. 1. The themes are love and heartbreak.
The music is Country with some R&B and Pop, which is an incredible blend of genres. The sound is catchy and bold. The banjo and the guitar give the EP that trademark touch of Country music. The compositions are impressive, intricate and rich in melodies and tones – the songs are well-structured and outstanding. There’s an old-school vibe to the EP that complements the modern aspects.
Kane Brown’s voice is fantastic and soft. He has incredible duets with notable artists, with Swae Lee and Khalid (Be Like That) and John Legend (Last Time I say Sorry). He sounds rhythmic and bold in his singing.
The lyrics are romantic or full of emotion, depending on the song.
There’s remarkable freestyle writing through well-written poetry.
The pieces about love are Worship You, Didn’t Know What Love Was, and Last Time I Saw Sorry. The songs are full of depth and soul. A tune about peace and equality, according to sources, is Worldwide Beautiful. It’s a heartwarming piece. On the other hand, the song covering heartbreak is Be Like That is about a man who wished he’d never met the woman he dated who caused him pain. It covers the subject with raw emotions, which is relatable and genuine. The song BFE is a lovely piece that describes travel within the US nicely in a nostalgic and heartwarming fashion (not during the COVID-19 pandemic, of course). Each piece is well-written, with precision and intricacy.
The EP Mixtape Vol. 1 is available.
