Ten months after the release of his impressive debut single, “Cocaine,” Will Swinton blessed his fans with a new banger titled “All For You.” Through non-traditional drums, angelic vocals and crisp production, Swinton delivers a true masterpiece on the new drop.
“All For You” kicks-off with acoustic guitar plucks that immediately give the song an uncommon folk vibe. The guitar leads into the first verse which features silky vocals and the introduction of eccentric drums that will appear through the rest of the song. Continuing to build, the New Zealand-born artist introduces a bass guitar that expertly fills the bottom-end of the track in. Energy builds until the peak that boasts group-sung vocals and a harmonica on top of a beating drum pattern.
The thoughtful inclusion of instruments like the harmonica, tambourine and the unusual kick drum add to the off-kilter vibe of the track — which is what makes it so special. While it is true that derivatives of artists like Post Malone and The Kid LAROI can be heard, Swinton brings his own artistry that shines through “All For You.”
In less than two weeks, “All For You” has picked up over 20k streams on Spotify and has been added to Spotify editorial playlists like Pop n’ Fresh and The Local List Aotearoa. Although the 21 year old only has two songs in his discography, his potential to become a chart-topping artist is obvious.
