Spencer Goldman is a singer/songwriter from Minnesota, USA. On June 24th 2022, he released a brand new single titled “Breakthrough”. We took a listen to the new single, what did we think? Here goes!
Lets cut to the chase here, is this rock? Perhaps. Is this pop? Not as we know it. Is it, dare we say, pop-punk? The real answer to these three questions is a resounding maybe – not a definitive yes to any of them (this is important) because this sounds like an artist doing what they like and not giving a damn. Yes we’re going there. What Breakthrough is, it is just that! There’s a lot going for it – big sound with nice punchy drums, enough guitar to satisfy even the most stubborn rocker and solid vocals that really give a great performance.
The overall mix and master of this track is huge, not a moment wasted or an element smothered by something else – this is goldilocks the soundtrack. A very excellent series of minutes and seconds we just wish could last a lifetime but like all good things it had to end… or did it? We want more!
