Lovisa is an infectiously hard-hitting song from Carolus’s album To the fallen sons. The band offers something of a classic Incubus approach to creativity, fusing elements of hard-rock or metal with something that is notably more melodic and characterful. It’s a brilliant sound, in my opinion, incredibly refreshing at this point in time, and this particular song has been thoughtfully crafted with every new section offering something interesting and cleverly detailed.
Rather than quickly becoming a rock track that blends into the background, Lovisa is a song that grows more and more impressive each time you hear it. If at first, you find yourself swept away by the sheer energy and passion of it, later on, you start to notice more and more of these subtle intricacies that make it such a considerate and unique experience.
This is the switch from the verse to the hook on a bigger scale, and the flickers of alternative instrumentation and guitar on a smaller scale. The rhythm changes, the space in contrast with the weight, the softly sung moments in contrast with the screams – nothing carries on for too long that it becomes overbearing.
On the contrary, each moment sits just right, carefully paving the way towards what’s next – similarly to how the scenes of a film might. Carolus is the sensational rock/metal artist who brings this sweet piece of art for us. It’s amazing because most of us love the passion and the energy of pure rock and metal music.
Carolus is a Swedish artist who brings out the best from Swedish rock music for us. His style is unique and already there are many monthly listeners on major streaming platforms who are waiting for his music. The hook melody is insanely good, and even as the song continues, there are still more moments that will surprise and hold onto your attention. Well worth a look.
