The latest release from “Steve Fitzsimmons”, “Pump It Up” is an Indie rock track that adds subtle and extraordinary support to the underlying song and emotion. The soundtrack is built from various soft twisted synths and is incredible. The resulting song comes with a touch of nostalgia, the rhythm and bassline feel very old, as well as the intermittent rock elements that explode through the environment. In addition, the song appears somewhat distant in the mix – the structure of the song as well as the melody has a surprisingly alternative rock feel. Still, the lead voice seems to be this same electronically charged element but fits in smoothly between them all. It is surrounded and supported.
Steve Fitzsimmons is one of the amazing, well-talented, and magnificent souls who have based in Liverpool. “Pump It Up” is a powerful yet soft-spoken song that makes its mark in a definite but subtle way. There is so much energy in the structure and brilliance of the soundtrack and in the songwriting and performance of the leading artist. The music for one is truly unique, with considerable space, a fairly simple melody and focus around a few clear colourful riffs. The rhythm of the entire track is a big part of what makes it work so well. Music inspired by world rhythms has a somewhat tribal feel. The voice distribution above this is well matched to the energy below. His voice strikes with flawless accuracy and relevance, playing almost any part of another programmed instrument with excellence and accuracy.
It all has a definite vibration the rhythm of each instrument, the thickness of the bass compared to the lightness of some synths the soundtrack is extensive and detailed, and, of course, the song in between. He sang this football song in a unique way. It’s all worth it, and it’s interesting to hear—a well crafted, creative release.
