Fresh from his unexpected, but gratifying success with “Kedvesem” at Eurovision 2013, ByeAlex is back with a breathy, edgier, more musically engaging track, “Csoro itt minden hang”.
Looking hotter and less threadbare, ByeAlex channels his despondence over a cool ambient sample. With his full-bodied vocals, he engages the listener with his rasp and pain. You know he’s sad, you feel he’s broken. The music video that supports this single release is visual poetry. It is conceptual and beautifully executed.
ByeAlex is no puppet pop prince. He is a cartoonist with strong musical leanings. His songs exhibit depth, creativity and imagination. I was entranced by the video, and when it finished playing, it felt complete. On repeat listens, the track dug deeper. If the primary purpose of art is to inspire individuals to connect with their emotions, then ByeAlex deserves seriously high praise.
Like “Kedvesem” before it, “Csoro itt minden hang” doesn’t really go anywhere. There are no peaks and valleys. Just a heady cocktail of sublime beauty and pain.
