Wonky piano chords undulate in the intro as a jaunty violin melody and snare hits play quietly in the background. Rudys hazy vocals float into focus, creating a dreamy feel as the lead arpeggio teases in the background. When that wiggling synth line finally slams in with the beat and the playful, cute hook, the impact is huge. An additional synth layer adds more bite to the massive bassline, colouring in the gaps further. The arrangement strips back to the arp, kick and vocals to give a moment of spaciousness, and Nathalies laconic delivery adds a gentle lift.
The breakdown is a beautiful affair, coming across like a soaring melodic techno moment where the synths reach higher towards the heavens and the vocals send tingles up the spine. The electro pop flavour soon returns with renewed vigour, with a bold contrast between the two sections.
With a definite French electro/disco heritage running through it, Gran Music is another mightily impressive addition to the O.N.O. catalogue that shows once again their prowess for uniting the dancefloor with the realms of pop sensibilities.
