If you have ever thought about trying out the new Avicii Wake Me Up electronic dance music single, you’ll find it is quite fun. The mix is what sets it apart, with many of the other albums with similar themes and sounds having been aimed more for adult audiences. There’s nothing offensive or sickening about the lyrics and they are definitely uplifting and positive. In fact, a lot of the songs have been produced specifically with younger audiences in mind, so they make excellent dance music.
The single, “Avicii Wake Me Up”, is a great example of this. It has been produced by DJ Craze with production help from Avicii, along with additional sounds courtesy of producers Cazique and Sirehouse. This is just a small taste of the outstanding music that can be heard on the album. “Avicii Wake Me Up” features some of the best beats around, which combine with the light and danceable piano music for a perfect mix. What’s more, the video features the whole band performing together – this makes it an even better song.
Just like the Avicii Wake Me Up single, the main focus of the album is uplifting and positive. The overall theme is created around the idea of “what if”, using different situations to explore and ask questions that many people tend to ignore or laugh about. For example, on the second track “Hooked On You”, Avicii asks; “Why’d you leave me alone? You said you were in love with me right?” This is a good way to start the album, as it delves into the listener’s psychology and question.
“Hooked On You” is one of my favorites, because not only does it have great danceable beats, but it also features another interesting line; “I’ve been runnin’ around in circles, chasing you around, trying to make a name for myself”. The line is clever and funny all at once. While it may seem silly and basic at first, you’ll find that the more you listen to the album, the more it’ll become relevant to you. It is quite a simple concept but one that is very applicable to many situations.
“Losing It” is also another fantastic song. This is the track that is played after the introduction of “Wake Me Up”. I don’t think that most people will lose their minds at the end of the album, but this is one that you’ll find yourself thinking about long after the album is over. The title is quite appropriate, as it depicts someone who is going through a lot of changes. This is where you’ll find the band experimenting with various sounds, most of which are quite unusual.
A lesser known but excellent track on the album is “Starfield”. The beats are soft and soothing and it fits the album nicely. In fact, I’d go as far as to call this song a slow dance. You’ll find yourself really enjoying the simplicity of the music and how it allows you to feel peaceful and tranquil.
In terms of hooks and rhythms, you’ll find yourself not wanting to stop. Avicii Wake Me Up is pure electronic dance, with a lot of synthesizers. Even though the main hook is a piano melody, it’s a complex beat that you won’t find on many other albums. If you’re looking for a complex hook that will keep you dancing and tapping your feet, this is not the album for you.
However, if you’re looking for a gentle and soothing song, you’ll find that Avicii Wake Me Up is the album for you. The song even has its own name, as it is also used on the song by Avicii, which you may not have heard of already. The song is called “Hooked”. On this song, Avicii sings along while wearing some headphones, which are hooked up to an electronic drum pad that generates the music. While that’s not exactly what you would expect to hear from the most popular electronic dance music, the song is still a great listen because of the excellent production.
