Anita Ward (the mastermind behind the disco classic “Ring My Bell”) has created a new track that will get listeners up and on the dance floor. On Another Bad Mistake, Ward is able to create a dance track that looks back to the days of disco while having a rapid tempo and a hard-hitting beat that works perfectly on EDM stations. The track is lead not only by Ward’s inimitable vocals but a smart production that allows each element – instrumental and vocal – the chance to shine.
Another Bad Mistake is able to accomplish more than other dance tracks in that there so many twists and turns that Ward takes before the effort ceases. By adding in super-sonic vocals, pounding drums, and a thick, ropy bass line, Another Bad Mistake is something that can stand up to repeat listens. With a melody that will tattoo itself deep into the minds and hearts of fans young and older, Another Bad Mistake seems to be the shot in the arm that the 1970s/1980s dance renaissance requires. While artists struggle to keep fans interested from the beginning to the end of a 3-minute song, the dense and bushy instrumentation and dynamic between Another Bad Mistake’s constituent elements keep fans firmly on the edges of their seat until the final note sounds.
Listeners that wish to find out more about Anita Ward and Another Bad Mistake should check out Young Pals, her record label. The single is available from iTunes and CDBaby. With such a storied sound connecting the past to a current and contemporary electronic approach, there is little doubt in my mind that Ward’s going to pick up fans of looking-back artists like Chromeo, Justice, and Cassius. Here’s to hoping that Ward is able to create something similarly strong with her follow-up to Another Bad Mistake.
