Hello, I’m MusiCommentator, and for the eighth installment of “Song Of The Week”, I will be discussing Lexie Liu’s relatively new single “Hat Trick”.
Lexie Liu is a new signee to 88rising, and I’ve made it pretty clear on this blog that I am a huge follower of that label (I won’t even link all of the posts that I’ve talked about them or their artists on because the list has grown too long at this point). I saw this song being advertised on Twitter through them, so of course, I checked it out, and I instantly fell in love with it.
The track is a love song, but there are so many beautiful, unique qualities about it. The transitions between languages are so seamless, and her many different vocal inflections prove her talent as a singer. There are parts where she pulls off a whispery tone, then starts a more assertive vocal performance a second later. Her performance is excellent, but I have to say my favorite part is the beat. It starts off with some ominous synths chords, which is par-for-the-course for many songs nowadays, but when the drums come in, the track becomes mesmerizing. The heavy, hard-hitting drum pattern matched with the deep, plinky guitar makes for a trippy beat that sucks you right in. Even though I don’t do drugs, I could only imagine how listening to this song high would sound. I listened to the rest of the EP this track came from, “2030”, and while there are many exceptional tracks on there, this one stands as my favorite, and it is definitely worth checking out!

I was pleasantly surprised to see that you review songs that are not in English. Even if I am not a fan of this particular genre, I really admire the different vocal inflections in the track! She is definitely very talented.

I always try and branch out when it comes to music because otherwise the same stuff gets stale.
That’s true. Thanks!
