Lord Conrad has been building his brand and building a formidable fan base ever since he impacted the music scene with his breakout single “Touch the Sky”, and its accompanying video, which starred iconic fashion model, actress, and famed celebrity Elisa Pepe Sciarria. The Italian DJ, music composer, songwriter, dancer, and model then followed up that success with another pop-infused, and melodic electro banger entitled “Day After Day”, which showcased the artist’s deeply introspective side. Lord Conrad’s new release, “1 Minute” takes the listener on a journey through a conscious, impassioned labyrinth. Even before the music starts, the single cover illuminates the wistful quality of the work contained within. The poignancy is further confirmed by the lyric sheet: “So we meet once again / In the coldest day of November / Does your hair look shorter? / Do I look taller? / Am I stuttering? / You’ve got one minute to love / One minute to love me.”
Right from the opening bars the song beautifully transitions into a space where Lord Conrad delivers his songwriting trademark of sweeping vocals which is accentuated in the intense celestial-inspired electro landscape. The result is a track with an entrapping environment that’s both hauntingly ethereal and somatic.
“1 Minute” renders itself a manifesto for coaxing a relationship to reconnect. A melodic urgency fills the track, allowing the vocals to shine through. The luring lyrics and tempo make this an infectiously pleasurable song to look forward to at a live performance or at the club.
As the music twists and turns on top of its driving beat, Lord Conrad’s composition allows the barbed, peppery vocals to create an intentionally free-spirited aural mosaic. The track transcends traditional musical definitions with the singer’s tone of voice and delivery.
Perusing the sometimes compelling qualities of love, the track’s philosophy enacts an intriguing perspective on current societal norms and relationships, and sums it up in one line – “You’ve got one minute to love.” However, Lord Conrad’s track stands out in particular for the singer’s vocal range and Lord Conrad’s shrewd musical ear. His abilities to tip the scales with the lyrical verses, ultimately leaving no emotional stone unturned.
When Lord Conrad drops a track, you know it is fire and this track is captivating infectiousness from the jump. Lord Conrad, or the persona portrayed in his songs, shows great exuberance in love and the pursuit of love. “1 Minute” has a heart-tugging rawness that extends to the abandon of the falsetto vocals in the soaring choruses. This is Lord Conrad perhaps at his most open and sincere and it pays off splendidly.
Not everybody may be on board with Lord Conrad’s electro-pop agenda, but if that’s your listening lane, it’s difficult to dislike or disrespect this man’s charisma and artistry. Lord Conrad’s exceptional ability to encapsulate experiences with strong emotions is highlighted in “1 Minute”.
This is a well-thought-out track that will definitely satiate Lord Conrad’s core fans and appeal to music fans looking for something authentic in today’s saccharin-coated market. It refreshingly captures where Lord Conrad is right now: reflective and challenging himself.
