David Guetta | Better When You’re Gone | Single Review

Parlophone Records
Rating: Thumbs Down

David Guetta’s new single, “Better When You’re Gone,” featuring Brookes and American pop duo Loote starts strong but slowly loses potential throughout its runtime. “Better When You’re Gone” begins with slow and subtle electronic keys and pitches so that the vocals of Loote’s Emma Lov Block provide a symphonic tone to the atmosphere. However, as the song progresses, the steady pace of bass and high notes is consistently boring, bringing down her vocal performance. With a steady yet monotonous melody due to a lack of diverse beats, no hype surfaces for the climatic drop that introduces a simplistic chorus. This new single is sure to take off with ravers, but other audiences need not apply.
