Kayah - Save You

Whatever you do, please don't call this Goth by any means. This is Pop Rock. Lead vocalist Henna and crew are back with another demo from just a year ago. Henna's voice is just as strong as the “Surrender“ demo, but I think it has gotten a little stronger this time around. “Save You“ still has the pop element such as the synths that makes the music so catchy, but her voice really shines through here. It almost over powers the music to a degree. The guitars from Ari are simplistic, but packed with power. The track has commercial appeal.


“Maintenance“ is more of a mid-tempo number. Henna's voice is broadened a bit because she tries to sing a little bit like Tarja from NIGHTWISH. No, she doesn't go for the opera appeal, but she is more dramatic and she drags out her words a bit more than the previous stuff. The synths work well here. They have a semi haunting feel. The track is a little bit slower than the previous stuff and this is a good thing because we can see just how versatile the can be.


Once again, the guys hit the nail on the head by making it catchy, memorable, and accessible for everyone to listen to. I would be on the lookout for this band in the very near future. (Online July 24, 2004)
