《迷你專輯》Chloe X Halle / Sugar Symphony


來自美國亞特蘭大的姊妹雙人組 Chloe X Halle,由現年 17 和 16 歲的 Chloe 和 Halle Bailey 所組成。父親引入門而開始學習寫歌創作,並透過網路教學視頻自學樂器。姊姊 Chloe 平常喜歡聽 Frank Ocean、FKA Twigs、Tune-Yards 和 Twenty One Pilots,妹妹 Halle 則喜愛爵士樂,這些音樂在她們的作品中都有某些程度的啟發。2012 年參加第五屆迪士尼電台 Next Big Thing 歌唱比賽贏得冠軍,之後在 YouTube 上傳翻唱影片,展現優美和聲與實力唱功,迅速累積知名度,其中翻唱 Beyoncé 的「Pretty Hurts」影片,至今已有將近 1,200 萬觀看次數。



2015 年被 Beyoncé 所創辦的 Parkwood Entertainment 公司簽下成為首批旗下藝人,星途一片光明。今年 3/15 參與美國第一夫人 Michelle Obama 號召眾多女歌手演唱的公益單曲「This is For My Girls」,並在 4/29 發行首張 EP 《Sugar Symphony》正式出道,收錄 5 首歌曲。



由兩姐妹共同創作與製作的主打「Drop」開場,另類 R&B 曲風營造獨特氛圍,間奏態度饒舌;「Red Lights」迷幻浪漫韻味,一陣酥麻;「Lazy Love」跳動旋律玩性大開、「Thunder」復古合成電子舞曲,最末曲「Fall」以古典抒情收尾。





受西洋天后碧昂絲青睞的潛力新人組,首張 EP 不以商業流行取向,如沐春風的音樂風格,很難想像是由兩位年輕女生所詮釋,實驗合成聲響與成熟靈魂嗓音舒服流動,如蜜糖般美好甜而不膩的歌曲交響奏樂,使人心醉神迷。五首聽完只想再聽更多,期待完整專輯的發行!

「Drop」Lyrics 歌詞:(by 好青年 整理)

[Verse 1: ]
Baby, I get sick of you
You're that same old tune
I don't ever wanna hear you again
Why are you here, I'd like to skip
Wanna be deaf to it
Can I turn my ears off?

[Chorus: ]
But time stops
When your beat drops
It's too strong-ong, long-ong
But time stops (Time stops)
When your beat drops (Beat drops)
Turn it off, off, off, off

[Verse 2: ]
Baby, I ain't listening, listening, listening
You drive me so crazy, so crazy, so crazy
Boy can you please play that again
You know you're not what I wanna sing
But you're the only thing
That's playing in my head
My head, my head, my head, my head

[Chorus: ]
Time stops (Time stops)
When your beat drops (Beat drops)
It's too strong-ong, long-ong
But time stops (Time stops)
When your beat drops (Beat drops)
Turn it off, off, off, off

[Verse 3: ]
When that beat drops
It shatters, glass ceilings
I'm in my feelings
Adrenaline be thrilling
Shards cut deep when you play
Shards cut deep when you stray
Vibrations move those mountains
Chaos flows like fountains
When I don't hear you I need it
When I do hear you I'm bleeding
There's no in between, between it
There's no middle, icing but no filling
It's a loving war with radio
Stop it, stop it
It's a loving war with radio
But I feel it, feel it, feel it
Shooby-dooby-do-do-do-do-do
Shooby-dooby-do-do-do
Shooby-dooby-do-do-do-do-do-do
Shooby-dooby-do-do-do

[Chorus: ]
Time stops (Time stops)
When your beat drops (Beat drops)
It's too strong-ong, long-ong
But time stops (Time stops)
When your beat drops (Beat drops)
Turn it off, off, off, off
