Today’s Daily Feature is “Radio Girl” by Spanish Indie Rock band Hola Chica. Whenever I listen to this song, I think of 80s bands like U2 or ABC. It might be the vocals as they remind me of Martin Fry and Bono. That is because the vocals of Hola Chica’s main vocalist have similar qualities: sultry low register (especially at the beginning) and sweet tones at the chorus. These vocals are really mesmerizing with their alluring features. They are a really good fit for the instrumentation.
Speaking of the instrumentation, “Radio Girl” features a bada** bass solo in the opening. It really sets the mood of the song and helps the singer reach those sultry low notes. I think the vocalist, the bass is one of the main players in this tone. The drum set and electric guitar have minor roles, being spotlighted here and there for a few seconds (especially the electric guitar at the end with its electrifying solo).
Hola Chica’s “Radio Girl” is such a fabulous indie rock with those alluring vocals and that bada** bass. It was well-written as well as addictive as listeners can listen to this song over and over with its upbeat rock tempo, sultry vocals, and delicious melodies. If you like a great upbeat rock song, then “Radio Girl” is for you!
