Artist: Joe Pagano
Single: ‘Take Me’
Paying homage to their roots, while also experimenting with new elements, is a vital aspect in musicians’ quest for continued success. New Jersey-based singer-songwriter, Joesph Pagano, proves he has the natural ability to do just that with his latest single, ‘Take Me.’ The EDM-dance song comes a few years after the release of his Americana-alt-rock breakthrough EPs ‘Graveyard of Dreams’ and ‘Time and Colors.’ The new track is his epic return to his roots, as it interweaves its classic 80’s vibe with an infectious beat and meaningful lyrics.
While the eclectic singer has moved away from his previous country vibe with the release of his new EDM-dance tune, his latest single still proves that he’s an indie force to be reckoned with on the airwaves. ‘Take Me,’ which is as wild and whimsical as anything he’s ever recorded, fearlessly takes his listeners back to his 80’s EDM-dance roots with a hypnotic, synth-happy appeal.
Led by a compelling guitar riff and stunning drums that support his trippy, colorful and abstract lyrics, ‘Take Me’ is Pagano’s first dance song since he played the lead guitar on the track ‘Cecelia’ by indie group N-Kuntrol in 1985. Along with a pulsating beat and synth bass, the musician fearlessly offered his listeners a glimpse into his earlier musical history, and appreciation of the EDM and dance genres.
‘Take Me’ marks Pagano’s stunning and gripping return to the EDM and dance genres, after he found success with his recent Americana-alt-rock tunes. Led by pulsating instrumentation, the singer’s lively, animated and vibrant vocals truly echo his lyrics that people can truly fall in love while making a fresh start. He inspirationally inspires his listeners to follow their hearts, even if they’re a little scared. The unique mix of nostalgic ’80s instrumentation, along with moments of the singer’s modern vocals, lyrics and high quality production value, make ‘Take Me’ a standout dance club anthem.
