He kept us ‘Running’ at Eurovision 2014 and had us crying out to him to be ‘My Baby’. Kállay Saunders – now known as the Kállay Saunders Band – return to the airwaves with a song that asks us if his music is ‘Faded’?
Well the answer to that question is simple – NO! Kállay is by no means ‘Faded’ so don’t be fooled by the title of the song. He was one of the more interesting artists at Eurovision 2014 and we had high hopes for him following the contest and he has not disappointed us.
Like his heritage, he and the band mix styles and genres of music and this track sees RnB, Soul and Electronic Dance music in a perfect 3 minute package! The pace of the songs drifts between parts that make you want to throw your hands in the air to others that make you want to get your groove and grind on. Not an easy thing to do in one song while at the same time making it sound cohesive.
Kállay has a great soulful voice that shows his American roots. The man has real soul. If I was to try to describe the sound it is like Bruno Mars meets Mark Ronson with a dash of Calvin Harris. Now that is a musical melting pot that just has my name written all over it. Let me get my speedos on dive in!
This is modern, this is contemporary and this is something that deserves to be on the airwaves across Europe. Kállay and the band make being cool look and sound effortless which many strive for yet few achieve.
The song comes with a HUGE recommendation from Eurovision Ireland.
Marks out of 12 – It has to be a sexy 12 points as Kállay is not fading away!
What do you think of ‘Faded’? Let us know.
