Andreas Pareli: “By The Spell” – high-class, smooth pop with broad appeal

Andreas Pareli was born in Haugesund, Norway and now resides in Bergen. A composer and singer, who plays the piano and guitar, Pareli  works within a variety of genres ranging from Latin Pop to Reggaeton, Salsa, Bachata, EDM and Tropical House to mention a few. He has a home studio where he makes his music, while the production is done in two studios in Bergen – TomTom Studio and Draum Studio. Pareli uses Sage Audio for mastering, which is located in Nashville, USA, just a few blocks down the road from RCA Studio B where Elvis Presley made some of his most famous recordings. His latest release is the 8 track album entitled “By The Spell” which contains some of his most popular singles.

This divine selection of tunes offer beautiful melodies delivered with glorious phrasing and tone which all Andreas Pareli fans would expect. Each track gives ample proof that Pareli is a master singer-songwriter who can dissect any genre and get to the bare bones of what a song needs to be captivating.

Andreas Pareli somehow represents a time gone by. A classier time. A time when the singer-songwriter commanded his recordings, after spending years honing his performance skills. It’s the kind of high-class, smooth pop with broad appeal. Something you once expect from the suave superstar Bryan Ferry when he was in his heyday.

There are no jagged corners here, and many will forge memories of lust and intoxication listening to these sensual beats. “By The Spell” is fabulous at what it does; no one can deny its marketability and the almost universal adoration it will garner from top class clubs and radios alike.

This tendency towards crossover electronic and pop, is balanced by many Latin flourishes, which can be savored right from the opening, and title track, “By The Spell”. Generally, Pareli’s’ vocal delivery is smooth, but here his seductive silkiness in such abundance.

Boasting a catchy Latin shuffle that firmly lodges the hook in the listener’s memory, “Come Drive With Me” is an appropriate second track to the opener. The throbbing beat and Pareli’s flawless vocal flow drives “Hesitate No More” in an uncomplicated and rhythmic expression of genuine romantic emotion. And if you’re ready for the dance floor, then the EDM foundation of “Let’s Go For A Ride” bounces along at a steady and jubilant pace.

“Higher” is a real highlight, as its production shows Andreas Pareli at his most vulnerable and would be great to dance cheek to cheek at a tropical club. Andreas Pareli’s fusion of Latin romance and electro dance is a pretty potent force on this album.

And I’ll admit, I’m sold into it: the production has flavor, Pareli’s sincerity and passion is cleverly weaved into the metaphoric lyrics, and the man has some real charisma. Moreover when switches his voice into a whispering falsetto, as on “I Long For You”, he’ll definitely be melting many hearts. But that’s not the highest point on the album yet. That spot belongs to “Crystal Of Ice”.

This has to be Pareli’s best musical arrangement, vocal performance, and song production, to date. Not to mention the accompanying music clip which perfectly supports the song’s narrative and is well shot too, in a vivid setting. The singer’s voice enchants the very words that he brings to fullness. You’ll find yourself lost in fantasy; filled with energy and tranquility at the same time.

Andreas Pareli is a seductive and alluring singer, and he shows it off one more time, on the album’s upbeat closing track, “Battleground Soldier”. “By The Spell” is a great album to play on a road trip or after a long, stressful day when you need to relax. Pareli doesn’t just have a captivating voice but he knows how to make his music impact because of the rhythms, the production, the lyrics and his all-round cool-as-ice style.
