Avicii | SOS | Single Review
Rating: Thumbs Up
The posthumous single from the late electronic artist Avicii, entitled “SOS,” provides a fitting tribute to the influential musician. It’s largely in the style of much of his catalogue, featuring high production and fun, summery instrumentations. This includes bouncy snares, smooth lead synthesizers, and some groovy bass lines. The track also features vocals from long-time collaborator and vocalist Aloe Blacc, delivering some pretty standard light-hearted pop lyricism. Overall, the track doesn’t really bring much new in terms of what most of Avicii’s discography already contains, but rather it serves as a testament to the musician’s well-tempered production abilities.
