“Carribea” by MRY – A Song Review

     “Carribea” is where young and attractive guitar hooks go to vacation. The track from MRY is so laden with melodic attention-grabbers that they are layered over each other toward the end of the song.

     The soundscape painted by “Carribea” isn’t fully aligned with the Caribbean, which may explain the creative spelling of the song title. But there is a bouncy frolic that is characteristic of music from the region. The lyrics and the vocalization are consistent with the imagery of the instruments. For example, MRY makes seemingly effortless shifts to the falsetto range when declaring, “I feel myself let go.”  

     MRY is a shorthand pronunciation of the driving force behind the project - Sam Emery. He is based in Los Angeles. Quoting content from SubmitHub:
  "After a sudden realization that the routine of corporate life wasn’t for him, Sam decided to make a break from the corporate world and soon found himself writing songs in basements and sleeping on couches during a period of Vagabonding in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Echo Park. Gathering inspiration from his musical influences ranging from Nile Rodgers and Tina Turner to Bruce Springsteen and Van Halen, Sam also was also inspired during his early mornings traveling along the coastline on the Pacific Coast Highway after finishing the night shift at a facility in Malibu.  Sam drew from these experiences and linked up with Mario Rodriguez of That’s Nice to craft an indie-pop sound ready for the dance floor."
