Review: Warren North – Game of Love

Artist: Warren North
Album: Game of Love EP
Release Date: June 6, 2017
Genre: Pop/Rock

Back in October, Warren North released “Café,” the first single from his forthcoming “Game of Love” EP. At the time, we dubbed the mid-tempo pop tune a “vintage look at modern romance;” one that borrowed from popular music’s old school while sounding accessible for the present.

On Tuesday, the rest “Game of Love” will officially arrive, and there is much to enjoy about the Sunsets North frontman’s four-track pop rock volume.

Opening and title track “Game of Love” is a funky, upbeat way to start the record; one that seems to borrow some influence from contemporary acts like Daft Punk and X Ambassadors. A bit later, the emotion is palpable on “She’s Got a Hold on Me,” as North’s vocal bubbles with desperation to escape the addiction of a toxic-turning relationship.

Closing the effort is “Break the Mold,” a tender ballad for the hopeless romantic in all of us.
