Le Fil returns with his stand out new track ‘Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is’. It has a nostalgic vibe but also plenty of modern elements to make it a relevant record for recent times.
It kicks off with a bash! A drumbeat then follows with a rock and roll rhythm, and a piano lead leaps out and pulls us in for the journey. Le Fil then pops out with a vocal which is challenging to refuse. It is catchy, and it brings a melody which you will struggle to keep at bay.
A catchy ‘yeah, yeah, yeah’ warms us up in the pre-chorus before an engaging chorus which fascinates. It does resemble the ‘Village People’ slightly in the chorus melody, but it stays true with Le Fil providing a distinct and memorable vocal.
His verse is melodic, and upfront Le Fil glides through with a nail-biting rhythm riding alongside. He points out the downsides of a modern relationship with him echoing out ‘Follow My Finger’ in his vocal line. I can almost imagine him standing there, swaggering his finger around in front of his lover.
Overall, it is an interesting and exciting release from the London based singer. Furthermore, I cannot mirror it to any other track currently jumping out of the pop scene. Also, although it does have sentimental qualities, it does get the endorphins rising with its happy rhythm. Nevertheless, I would have liked to have a little more in terms of guitar and bass. But, it is a top track, and one which I am sure will be echoing out of bars and clubs for quite some time.
If you would like to check out the track head on over to Spotify, and make sure and follow the artist on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
