“Bright Side” by MKX

“Bright Side” by MKX is simply the epitome of energy. With each crisp electronic drum hit or clever, relatable lyric, this track blossoms into a dance-pop masterpiece. Even with the layers of sparkling, meticulous production, MKX’s personality bleeds through, giving us the perfect intersection between commercial and organic goodness. If you need a song that’ll brighten up your day, you couldn’t do better than this one.

The song begins with a covered, reverb-drenched version of one of the many vocal hooks. Synths swell in the background, eventually culminating in a heavy bass and drum groove. “Ah, ah / Not me stuck up in a mood / Ah, ah / Not me thinking you are too,” MKX sings with a sultry, powerful timbre. As the song moves forward, new instrumental textures layer in, each adding its own rhythmic value. The song itself is quite fast, resulting in this frenetic, busy, dance-able atmosphere.

By the time the chorus kicks in, fuzzy synths envelop the mix. It has this sort of nostalgic, mid-2000s sound, invoking the Black Eyed Peas but with a few modern twists. The melody is so catchy you’ll be unable to forget it. It’s doubtlessly a pop song for the ages and a brilliant display of production, performance, and writing.

Be sure to give MKX a follow and a listen and your choice of social media platform or streaming service! He might just be your new favorite pop artist, and “Bright Side” will most definitely be your summer anthem.
