German musician, producer and composer Judith Haustein offers a blend of smooth crooning vocals and swoon-worthy melodies with her new single ‘Freeze’. Complimented with a starkly modern vocal feature near the end (MC BNZ) that carries the trip-hop vibe, the track is fun from beginning to end, overflowing with charm and swing energy reminiscent of the 1930s.
Haustein’s soft voice is empowered through layering harmonies, allowing it to remain sweet without losing any impact; accompanied by a jazz-inspired bassline and brash percussion, the song weaves its way to completion, maintaining steady pacing and an effortless style. With a matching music video that continues the chic and polished flair, the dreamy atmosphere is elevated further.
Not only does the track sound elegant, but it also provides a sound that has become lost in the last few years in a way. It removes any notion of cliche, which is primarily helped by the rap feature that, whilst unexpected, is more than welcomed into the song, allowing listeners to let it all wash over them.
‘Freeze’ as an overall concept is beautifully presented and knows what it is. As the first single to be released from Haustein’s upcoming album ‘The Flood’, the track acts as an impressive teaser and if all the songs hold the same demonstrated musical skill and artistic vision. Haustein has masterfully blended various genres, as well as decades, and listeners should be excited for what her future releases will bring.
