Let’s Try (from Electric Shock – 2012)
I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with Let’s Try. It’s such a gawky pop track, hinging on a sing-song hook that’s either addictive and cloying depending on your mood. The track’s sheer spunk gets it over the finish line, and I do enjoy the vast range of notes used in the chorus. The contrast between the high-pitched peaks and grittier, Amber-fueled valleys really works. But, Let’s Try’s highlight is probably its effusive pre-chorus, which is fleshed out by synth pads and a more layered vocal arrangement. A little of Let’s Try goes a long way, so I guess we’ll just call it a guilty pleasure.
