Here at the Send Me Your Ears studio today, we’ve been listening to the latest single from Ryan Palma. Bedroom Noise was released on March 17th, 2023.
Ryan Palma is an emerging artist, singer, multi-instrumentalist, audio engineer, and
songwriter originating from Fremont, California, now based in San Jose.
Bedroom Noise is a relaxing bedroom pop earworm that will appeal to fans of bedroom/indie/emo pop/rock. Bedroom Noise is a love story that captures the essence of
that one special person we just can’t get enough of. Lyrically, sounding like a story being told through music. We loved the conversational feel of the song, with lines such as “I got you a leather bicycle seat for your birthday,” Bedroom noise tells an intimate love story through descriptive imagery.
Coming straight in with a full band sound, the electric drums are punchy and smacking, giving the song a downtempo feel that could work well as a “study vibes” or chillout track. A dreamy guitar interweaves with the drums and sets the scene for the vocals.
When the vocals come in, they are layered with gorgeous harmonies. The vocal feels as though it was recorded close to the mic, and gives a breathy and intimate feel, making the listener feel privileged to be allowed to share in Palma’s story about his special person.
Drums dropping in and out creates some rise and fall within the track, and we liked the echoes of vocal lines with filtered distant voices. A breakdown with filtered vocals and swirling guitars is a nice touch, before returning to that catchy earworm of a chorus that will stick in your head all day!
Ideas from our ears
A hi-pass filter at 35Hz and a cut at 45Hz would start to balance out the low end a little. A boost at 70Hz and a cut at 110Hz should result in a smoother sound overall. As always, these are just some ideas from our ears.
Ryan Palma’s latest single, Bedroom Noise is a relaxing, chillout bedroom pop track with heartfelt lyrics and a catchy chorus.
