I’m still trying to decide if Church-Hill and Half Moon Bay‘s single “Vinegar” is a deep cut or not. It’s extremely catchy like a pop song but has so many untraditional pop elements. The song starts off with about 8 seconds of a soothing guitar loop before Church-Hill comes in with melodic and gritty vocals. Church-Hill‘s repetitive melodies are well-placed and intricate. They change slightly just about every other bar, keeping me on my toes and making me want to keep listening.
After the first chorus, Half Moon Bay comes in with a calming and slow verse that seamlessly compliments the high-energy and fast-paced vocals of Church-Hill. Half Moon Bay comes off very vulnerable, which attaches me to this song on an emotional level. The lyrics grab me by the throat and make me choke up inside.
All in all, “Vinegar” is at the top of my list for underrated songs these past few months. If you haven’t already, check out the song on all platforms. I’m sure you’ll hit the replay button just like I did all day long.
