Wesker’s Weekly Video Musings
Each week Lindsay Wesker will be talking about the video that has caught his attention and giving his views for your entertainment. This week he takes a look at newcomers Misunderstood.
Graduates of the BRIT School of Performing Arts, Stephan Benson and Jeffrey Okyere are the two members of Misunderstood, and their debut single ‘Trouble’ is as dynamic as a debut single gets. This is bright, punchy, powerful with loud colours, big beats, lush vocal harmonies, and some killer choreography from the accompanying cast. It’s very now r&b: a sparse arrangement with a real emphasis on the rhythm and top-line. There are no strings or horns, or any obvious nods to r&b royalty. This is a very contemporary-sounding track and, it may not be your thing, but their personality and star quality are clear to see. The material is good and it sounds like a hit record to me, so the future is in their hands. Initially, their audience will be very young, so let’s see how efficiently they can reach them?
