Cruising Altitude is a new artist who comes from Philadelphia, PA, USA. He shines brightly with a classic and moving rock sound on this latest song, “The Toll.” It’s his pre-debut single. The song instantly transports listeners to a happy place, starting with uplifting and airy guitars. The light and airy feel of the opening guitar reef is in stark contrast to the deep and passionate lyrics that speak to the personal struggles we all face in life.
The melody and vocal tone are the first elements that actually reach, which carry the main features of the song and reveal the underlying concept in a slightly different way. Later, as the music progressed, the instrument began to take a leading position. The track is two minutes and thirty-three seconds long, and from a compositional point of view – time is used creatively and the soundtrack is effectively built-in a soft rock style.
When the song pops up, the whole thing feels like a consciously tuned piece of music that has a short lifespan but repeatedly presents enough times to make sure you associate them with amazing sound. In addition, the drum beat has a certain thickness and strength, it stands out significantly – it feels like it’s filled in the intermission or the entire track, giving it a more refreshing personality. Above all, the melody of the song and the music provided by the lead singer. The lyrics certainly tend to be rocky, but the melody bends in a way that brings that accessible pop touch, allowing the artist to reach a wider audience with their music.
The song is confidently presented in a wonderful voice. There is a lot of space on the single, the lyrics are not overloaded, and the soundtrack is a bit subtle and well-positioned, so you will see a change in the lyrics and especially the hook section. The song feels totally stylish, thoughtfully put together and structured so that it allows you to get lost in the shock, but at the same time distinguish between different moments very clearly. Every moment that shines, the Cruising Altitude seems to blend in well with the music, so the sound is very polished. The concept is clear and personal and creates something quite accessible. It works well.
