Feature Of The Month: Carbonaddy – “Holly Groove” Single

Artists can be dime-a-doze, but there is only one Carbonaddy.

This dynamic duo brings forth a pop/groove signature sound to the table that is insatiably witty, charismatically original and contains more versatility than most mainstream groups you’d hear in today’s music spectrum. A solo project conjured from quarantining during the COVID pandemic and comprised of Comp band members Wesley Jensen and Kyle Hawthorne, Carbonaddy brilliantly fuses together a stylization with a futuristic aura that touches on equal parts originality and familiarity; giving each listener something completely fresh yet still identifiable. Utilizing an electronic-infused production style with rhythmic drum sequences and theatrical tempo changes, their newest single “Holly Groove” proves that the title lives up to the name – and grooves away throughout the song’s duration.

This track’s versatility is very apparent and encompasses several multi-layered measures between the bassy progressions and mid-to-high range duel vocals. Each element plays a crucial role in this song and has a structure that is not only clever but multifaceted as well. Diligently executed tempo changes bring additional atmospheres to the forefront, all while holding down consistency between the track’s theatrical edge. And this is perhaps not only one of the biggest charms this track has going for it, but a masterfully mixed production value as well; putting emphasis in all the right places. Wesley’s vocals have a plethora of styles and ranges utilized throughout each verse, chorus and breakdown; delivering something different each time but still letting the listener know that it is indeed the same singer pulling this all off at the same time.

Another notable component is the essence of groove this song puts forth. From solid 8th note rhythms to strong snare & bass measures, the addictively rhythmic raucous creations through the dexterous rhythm section is impossible to go unnoticed, and parallels perfectly with Wesley’s powerful and distinctive vocal textures, ranging from breathy to full-on projection. All done with clarity and precision, as well. “Holly Groove” is currently available on YouTube, Spotify and several other digital music streaming platforms. This is one you’ll be very glad you gave a listen. You can thank us later.
