Vortex is a catchy rock track that keeps one’s toes tapping while washing over fans with taut instrumentation and an eclectic, deep sound. Hints of Bryan Adams and Rush can be picked up here; a ropy bass line and charismatic vocals push this single to an entirely higher plateau.
C’est la vie is our favorite of this pair as there is a bit more emotional heaviness to the composition. Listeners that have fallen in (and out of) love will find some common threads with McMorris’s other new single. Allowing the instrumentation a bit more room to breathe (plus hints of Cheap Trick and even disco) makes this an unfettered success.
