“My Chest” is a new, raw ballad from the electronic duo Oh, Be Clever out of Salt Lake City. Their sound is a refreshing blend of indie, electronic, soul sounds matched to fit any mood. However, their latest track is a slightly different from their typical up-tempo style.
Lyricist and vocalist Brittney Shields’ incredible tone is paired perfectly with the sounds of multi-instrumentalist Cory Scott Layton. This song, amongst all of the others, is a flawless representation of the band’s musical chemistry, its like they were made to perform and create together. Things have not always been smooth sailing for this duo, though.
In high school, Shields and Layton used to perform in separate, rival bands. The two groups loathed each other; even escalating to physical violence after they came to blows in a parking lot brawl following a gig. It was that night that Shields and Layton decided to split off from their respective groups to create Oh, Be Clever- and were so glad they did!
“My Chest” is a truly relatable song for anyone who’s ever been in a new, blossoming relationship. Shields writes, “My Chest’ is a really close song to me…This was one of those songs that just FELL out of my brain and onto my laptop. I was starting to date someone new and forgot how good it felt to feel those butterflies and even that pesky little emotion ‘fear.’ So I did what any gal should do…wrote it down and made it into a song.”
This heartfelt ballad has all the workings of a rock/pop anthem but with the intricate beats and melodic rhythm of a true indie track. The hook and chorus truly draw the listener in, while the twinkling and punching beats string the listener along in perfect, rhythmic harmony. This track is infectious and versatile; one that you can jam out to in the car or while chilling with friends at home. Listen below!
