In these incredibly testing times it’s important we thank those that are on the frontline, something Ruth Brosnan has done in the form of her new song ‘Electric Gold’.
Inspired by the difficulties we’ve all faced during the global pandemic, Ruth set about to try and bring back some positivity. With her upbeat, high tempo track she’s done precisely that.
However, inspiring tracks is not something she isn’t used to. Previously, the artist has seen praise for her singles ‘Good Enough’ and ‘Toodle-oo’.
In these she focused on topics such as strength and women’s empowerment. It’s clear to see from these songs, as well as ‘Electric Gold’, that Ruth is using her talents for good, a musical Batgirl if you will.
Having won awards like ‘Track of the Week’ on music blog Indulge me and being number one on the ‘Spotlight Chart’ for Pure Magazine, it’s clear to see she’s more than just your average artist.
This is something that is evident in the new track as well. In her own words, ‘It’s about realizing that we are all our own heroes and will overcome these tough times and emerge together stronger.
‘…It is a shot of adrenaline to all of those obeying the rules so far to keep on going and a thank you/acknowledgement to frontline staff’.
Don’t expect to be eased into this track, immediately we’re treated to a high intensity electro pop style beat.
The upbeat and motivational vibe, synonymous with Ruth‘s tracks, are ever present as well. It’s a song you feel you could see yourself getting up and dancing to for sure.
To some, the high intensity idea might come across as a bit too much, but it creates a feel good buzz that immerses you into the whole song.
As it progresses, it keeps with the fast tempo set out from the start, cementing the notion that this song is not one to sit down and chill out with.
Halfway through, she mixes up her style, opting for a rap. A refreshing change to the tune, showing that Ruth is more than just your average pop artist.
While it may only be a small and succinct rap, it helps to let the track breathe. Alongside this, it provides us with a refreshing change, giving the listener a chance to take a step back from the fast-paced feel of the track.
Overall, the track is a great number to get yourself up and dancing to. What makes it even better is that it’s produced for a great cause.
