Brock Zanrosso set to drop electro-pop album “Love Kills on September 18th, 2012
Brock Zanrosso’s electro-pop album “Love Kills” will hit the streets on September 18th, 2012, hot off the success of his radio-ready dance-pop single “Drowning.” This YTV’s ‘The Next Star’ alumni follows up his debut album "Prelude" and finds his place with an edgy and hard hitting, electro-pop meets dub-step inspired album that fits in perfectly with today’s market, with a sound that has been likened to artists like Justin Timberlake, The Wanted and Rihanna. Zanrosso is no stranger to the club scene, from his club tours throughout Canada to a stint on Stef Langs “Fighting Mirrors” tour, and most recently performing at Canada’s Wonderland; it’s easy to see where the relentlessly catchy, danceable pop inspiration for “Love Kills” came from. Produced by West Pryde and Tommy Armitano, Brock had a hand in the writing of every track, crafting an album with a winning formula that includes party ready anthems and simplistic yet sexy lyrics that explode into club banging beats. His first radio single, “Drowning,” has already seen a multitude of success and the release of his up-coming single “Take It Off” is sure to solidify the album a deserving place in the pop culture dance-phenomena taking over the airwaves.
“Love Kills” begins with the slow and steady “I Found It” which serves as an effective intro to the electro-infused, heart pumping album. It builds the listener up for the explosion of noise and beats that’s about to take a place, an anthem where Brock stands poignant and his voice wails in anticipation of what’s to come. It’s hard, chilly synths pound under the stronger side of his voice until it segues effortlessly into the lead single “Drowning.” A punchy yet identifiably melodic club track, it’s full of a sort of sassiness that defines the mature attitude Brock has carefully cultivated throughout the album. His anger is matched by the pounding of the bass and the stripped down, electro-infused dance break. The title track, “Love Kills,” is a hauntingly harmonic, pulsating ballad that is both seductive and painfully tragic. Brock’s voice stands alone, undulating over the electric guitar and bump-and-crash of the bass hitting the synth. It serves the title well, the listener able to feel how much the loss of love is killing his strength and faith as he croons, “Tryin’ to find, someone to replace you… I want you to be my girl, I want you inside my world, no one can replace you.” “Every Night” pairs ample ‘edge’ with the romanticism of the lyrical content for a powerful mid-tempo ballad that exposes a vulnerable side to Brock that’s not seen on the more banging, up-tempo cuts. The percussion snaps and the piano fades in and out, for a powerful sound that’s topped with a subtle desperation enhanced by Brock’s warm falsetto. The final track “Take It Off” brings the listener back to the rowdy, ludicrously hard-hitting trancepop, a place where Brock consistently shines with a gritty and seductive attitude that seems to come effortlessly to him. It finds that balance of vocals neatly flipped over an extra cavernous beat that ramps up the drama and will keep any club-goer moving from start to finish as “Love Kills” comes to its climax and ultimate end.
Brock Zanrosso’s “Love Kills” is a stand-out, mainstream masterpiece that can stand alone among the brightest stars in the industry.
