It is always fun when a song sneaks up on you and lures you back to it rather than you driving that urge. Changes from Evoluzion is one of those encounters, a track which certainly left enjoyment behind the first time but kept nagging away, sharing its hooks and haunting attraction in thoughts long after to spark repetitious returns to its presence.
The rap/pop seeded single comes from Australian musician/actor Cristian Saliadarre, an artist who signed his first recording contract back in 1989 at the age of fifteen and subsequently opened for MC Hammer and released the singles Bring Me On and The Right Way, the latter produced by New Kids On The Block drummer and Mark Walhberg’s producer, Derek Antunes. Both hit the charts and sparked keen radio and TV attention and saw Saliadarre touring and appearing on numerous television shows, the latter track also finding international success.
Moving to the US to live in 1996, Saliadarre subsequently landed in Los Angeles to pursue his acting career with many major acting credits following before turning back and concentrating on music and songwriting in 2014. Eventually returning back to Australian and basing himself out of Sydney, a meeting and linking up with composer/musician/artist Viet-Van Nyguen sparked the birth of Evoluzion and now the successor to last year’s well-received single I’m a Dreamer.
Synths instantly cast a haunting melodic sky, its shadowy atmosphere crackling with sonic lightning and rhythmic whips as a portentous wind colludes with evocative melody woven textures emerging within Changes. Saliadarre’s reflective vocals are a blend of harmony and rawer rap hues, each aligning in an alluring presence subsequently joined by the floating enticement of female tones.
It is a magnetic union of sound and voice which entices first time around and brews greater enticement over time through those imagination stroking keys and the hook of Saliadarre’s vocals, both repeating in memory with or away from the song.
Changes is out now.
