Pedigree pop queen Carly Rae Jepsen is back with the official release of her brand new single Cut to the Feeling; a track which leaked online a few weeks ago and got everybody bloody excited but, now in high quality sounds even more exhilarating.
Right from its sparkling Lucky Star-learnt synthtro through to those irresistible hand claps and deliriously lost-in-the-moment woo ad-libs which (along with that pounding drum beat and massive chorus) seriously make you wanna dance with somebody, this is an unabashed and unfaltering rush of 80s referencing pop delights.
“I wanna cut through the crowds, break the ceiling / I wanna dance on the roof, you and me alone,” she sings on a whopper of a chorus that captures that unbridled moment of getting lost in a blissful moment. “I wanna play where you play with the angels / I wanna wake up with you, all in tangles, oh”.
Championing and capturing the sheer free-willed beauty of love and happiness and the full gamut of e•mo•tion (rhymed with de•vo•tion in a sweet middle right) that comes with it has become Carly’s MO since she broke through with her massive Call Me Maybe, and right now that unbroken spirit is needed more than ever.
