Adrift is a multifaceted Canadian musician and songwriter based in Toronto. While EDM primarily comprises his sound, he also incorporates elements of rock, hip-hop, and R&B to solidify this artistic vision. Adrift’s new single, “For You,” adeptly expresses that spectrum of influences, by way of collaboration with Conn Fuego. Krista Youngs, an established American songwriter based in Los Angeles, California, rounds out the presentation as the song’s lead vocalist.
Initializing through notes of reverb-tinged percussion, the song transitions into a synthesized guitar sequence. The execution in conjunction with the beat works decently, first in a midtempo hip-hop form during the verses, and then in up-tempo rock once the chorus hits. Although Youngs’ tonality is somewhat obscured by noticeable pitch correction, it still emits a distinct sense of command, fitting comfortably within the song’s instrumentation. Overall, this three-talent team play shows promise in delivering diversity, especially when up against electronic music on a more mainstream scale.
