Toward the end of last year singer / songwriter, Rob Kovacs, released the single ‘Fizzle‘, which is off the upcoming debut solo album, ‘Let Go‘. ‘Fizzle‘ is a masterful composition about the anxiety of falling for someone. The atmosphere is light with playful piano moments that seem to give off that “butterfly feeling” of falling for someone.
Kovacs is an expert pianist who can skillfully transition from one motif to the next seamlessly. Going from a more lighthearted and playful sound to one filled with tension and apprehension, Kovacs manages to immerse the listener in the feelings on this moment and that’s just with the musical arrangement! Vocally, Kovacs’ warm yet tender vocals give off an air of vulnerability. The storytelling lyrics not only place the listener in the moment but also in the headspace with the inner dialogue of having missed an opportunity. Here’s what Kovacs had to say about ‘Fizzle‘:
“Fizzle” is not only the first song on the album but also the first one written. “It was a rare case where I wrote the melody a cappella first (rather than coming up with piano part first). The melody came to me on the drive home after the first time hanging out with the girl who would ultimately inspire the whole album. I often write a song because I come upon a musical idea that catches my attention. Writing music helps to express a feeling that I may otherwise struggle to express. Through this song, I try to convey the feeling of connecting and falling for someone combined with the anxiety about that feeling and the understanding that, for whatever reason, you can’t be with that person.”
