Showing she has the tools to take it to the next level, Baltimore by way of Long Island’s Cristal Carrington drops the beat in her new dance/pop delight “See You Dance”. What a way to make an entrance – Carrington’s debut single is tight with chameleon-like changing grooves and rhythms. Airy and wistful, the music bed bounces Carrington’s charismatic voice as close to the sun as she can take it.
A relentless chorus I want to see you dance, I want to see you party is inescapable. I had to listen a few times, but I also could have sworn she said I want to see you dance, I want to see your body. I think both work very well, actually. Her voice is sweet and endearing. This song feels like Carrington’s an artist that wants to come out of the gate in a positive way, and really test the waters. The music bed is like a ripping, curving and flexing all-at-once. The listener gets a real sense of movement, the ribboning beats overcome the listener, and at times, overtake Carrington’s vocals. I do wish there were more to her vocals – words that is. The lyrics are pretty straight forward, and just before the song ends, she whispers, in a breathy voice, I’m feeling so lovely all night long, I really want to go home with you, as if she were whispering in the ear of her prey. It’s a goodnight kiss moment to the song and it felt like it could have went a bit longer. Still, the lyrics and Carrington’s voice are pretty fun and intoxicating.
