Review: "For Hours" - Megan Burke
“For Hours” is a captivating bop and infectious listen that will literally be stuck in your head for hours. This soft pop embodies a smooth jazz style, dripping with sultry hooks and alluring production. Burke says goodbye to a lover who’s scorned her for the last time - she’s had enough of waiting for someone who doesn’t even give her the time of day. Burke’s catchy hooks follow you long after the song ends, embedding her own personal style and pizazz into a soundscape.
Burke’s stellar voice work shines brightly here, lighting up the track with her range and depth. Her playful vocals alongside the clever lyricism and catchy one-liners create a sound atmosphere instead of just a song. Burke’s clever wink at the 1980s style of disco and synthwave pair beautifully with her artistic vision, hypnotizing the listener to play it again and again. The effortless way Buke carries herself suggests years of performance experience and connecting with countless fans.
