The beats used for each track definitely have an ATL/FL TRAP music influence. Everything from the heavy base to the repetitive undertone of the loops give a sensual bounce that can’t be ignored by the listener. A few surprises in the intros consist of more string and piano tones with less bass. In example, Pink & Yellow Roses and So Long start with these gentle string and wind loops then the beat drops into the bass, yet keeps a balance of bass and hi-hat loops.
The lyrics of each song are an emotional roller coaster of the ups and downs pertaining to dating and relationships. These relationships span from familial to romantic to business related. Common topics like partying under the influence, ghosting, money, popularity and trust issues grace the tracks with smooth vocal tones.
The vocal tone from song to song is very steady. Each song can easily be mistaken for the last one that was played if the acapella versions were in rotation. The songs' catchy autotuned vocals mesmerize the listener under the influence of today's Trap music scene. I do see this album's mellowed vocals setting the mood for popular gentlemen’s clubs and speakeasys.
Naturally, an artist progresses and challenges their art to bring variety to their tones, lyrics and fanbase with each new album. I believe Moosiewins has yet to tap his true potential as a musical artist. He has tested the waters with his current fan base but he is definitely capable of more than just Trap music. I know his next album will move more than just influencer impressions, but will also move hearts across all listeners.
Smell The Roses by Moosiewins is available on all streaming platforms.
