“The Upside” is an anthemic electronic dance mix that showcases Elle King’s bluesy rock-n-roll vocal timbre and Lindsey Stirling’s signature electronic violin style. The 118 BPM track combines elements of progressive house and traditional pop to create a feeling that is soulful, high-energy, and bold. Elle King’s vocals remind me of Toronto singer Lights, and it helps that the production is something similar to what she would sing on, minus the violin which is what made this track stand out as extra unique in the first place.
Artists like Stirling keep music interesting and genres bending. The violin adds a classical sound component to a modern electronic atmosphere that really paints a different picture than what we’re used to.
