“Famous” by LIBERATI is the upbeat, warm, pop anthem you’ve been waiting for. If you’re partial to The 1975’s pop-adjacent work, then this’ll be your new favorite song. LIBERATI’s use of pulsing synths, layered vocals, and clever lyricism makes this tune truly memorable. It has that delightful, soul-moving quality only good music evokes. So, let’s dive into what makes this song so genuinely easy to enjoy.
The song begins with a climactic fade-in, allowing the listener to get a peek at the full groove before the eventual breakdown of the verse. “Feeding off the dopamine / The likes ignite like kerosene / And face to face just don’t feel the same,” LIBERATI croons over a crisp drum and bass pattern. The percussiveness of this section goes a long way, carrying the atmosphere forward smoothly. A drum fill eases us into the chorus, and the punchy, dynamically gratifying synths take center stage. “All my friends just want to be famous,” LIBERATI cries a charming, relatable hook on top of the vibrant production. The catchiness hangs in the air with a fierce presence. If you’re not dancing along by now, you’re doing it wrong.
Stay tuned for an eruption of gang-vocal-esque harmonies, a saxophone solo, and a whole slew of climactic production tricks. If this sounds like it may be up your alley, give it a listen and make sure to follow LIBERATI on your choice of social media platform. You’ll be delighted and impressed with his talent, taste, and style.
