Review by: Justyn Brodsky
Strong, boastful, and compellingly anthemic, European Artist/Producer Phil Specs hits home with his powerfully dark single, “One Last Kiss”.
The baritone singer brings a solid narrative to the conceptual realm of loving and leaving with this song, and really tells the story effectively. With a 90s edge in production value, this brilliantly-crafted song is very crisp, ambient, subtle and climactic. His voice is definitely versatile, but it artistically brings his multifaceted persona right to the center stage.
One thing came to mind when I first started listening to this track: great songwriting. It has that simplicity that never lacks catchiness, and a production style that isn’t convoluted with diversionary post-production sequences to distract you from anything the artist may lack. You can easily hear Specs‘ gifted talent right from the start.
If I had to put this song alongside something or someone that shows resemblance to this same kind of anthem-like quality, I would have to say Natalie Merchant’s “Carnival” is exactly what comes to mind; which is an incredible feat for an indie artist in today’s world of overproduced music.
You really gotta hand it to Phil Specs for this track, he really conjured up quite the treat with “One Last Kiss”, and it’ll be ringing and singing in your head long after the song is over.
