“Lonely Child” is the kind of song that really just draws your attention to the skillful songwriting that exists and even thrives just below the mainstream radar. It will be more than worth your while to dive headfirst into the musical catalog of Electric Blue Yonder.
The song “Lonely Child” is sublime, and really the feeling increases as the whole thing progresses. It’s an effortless recording in many ways, but the strength of it is that there is so much space within which to absorb the imagery and the concept of the track.
It’s the musicality of the whole, a complete piece that is making it stand out. But there’s also so much clarity in the voices, and so much that you can pick out and listen to, that to adventure further into Electric Blue Yonder’s catalog of music – to explore the sound and the artist’s character a little further – is likely to appeal to those who are a fan of the genre and the style and are looking for someone new to listen to. Everything is professionally crisp sounding and that makes it all the more effective as a stand-alone track.
Production-wise it’s a job well done. Not just in the creativity present throughout the instrumentation and the effects and the structure, but also in the way that each of the voices has been incorporated into the mix. The focus remains on the song as a whole, rather than constantly drawing your attention to both voices or any particular lyric. In a lot of ways the backing track soaks up the vocal and everything fits well together.
