Kovac’s exceptional vocal performance is the centerpiece, emphasizing all the instrumentations with perfectly balanced low, mid, and high notes. The cleverly assembled themes, leads, melodies, harmonies, chord progressions, and riffs serve as a perfect backdrop, supporting Kovacs’s sincere, confident, powerful vocal performance. You’ll also notice how equally detailed, vividly hearable, warm-sounding basslines support guitars, but also offer more than necessary heaviness, depth, and clarity. This composition wouldn’t sound complete without outstanding drumming performance based upon wisely constructed, energetic, well-accentuated beats, breaks, and fills. Each instrument plays a significant role in shaping such a rich and luxurious ambiance that will suit all modern pop-punk fans, but also those who’re stumbling upon this genre for the first time.
