Pop music soars at its highest when there’s an element of struggle. Whether it’s triumph over adversity, the unbridled joy of the dance floor in the face of sadness, or glorious melancholy of a huge chorus that is someone picking themselves up from their knees, pop works best when you can hear the artist fighting against the odds.
That’s why great pop music endures – it’s serious about our feelings, whatever they are. The sincerity, the hope, the feeling of being lost in the moment – pop music is the greatest, no matter what form it’s taking.
And so, to Melanie Mohlkert’s new solo project – CRONICLE.
