Eye Contact is the first ever single release from British emo rock artist stayMellow and it really caught my attention.
By Graeme Smith
First, a disclaimer: I’m an emo kid at heart. Yet, even I’ll admit that there’s good emo music and bad emo music. Eye Contact is definitely the latter. The lyrics and delivery elevate the everyday perils of life into something epic. It’s not straight emo though. There are hip hop elements, electronic dance elements, pop elements. I feel like each time I listen to it, I hear something different.
StayMellow is definitely an artist I’m going to keep my eye on from now on. If you’re an emo kid like me, you’ll love his music. Even if you’re not, the emotion he conveys is universal. Check out Eye Contact below.
