“Rewrite The Rules” by Gabrielle Ornate

Gabrielle Ornate made a lasting impression on us when she released her first single ‘The March of the Caterpillars‘ and has remained on our radar ever since. It is our immense honour to be writing about her music once again, this time for her latest single titled ‘Rewrite The Rules‘. So, without further ado, we’ll jump in.

The song opens with a dramatic flair, instantly demanding your attention as drums crash whilst an electric guitar lays down a delicious funk/rock melody line. Heavy sweeping synth adds both deep bass and mid-range melodies, creating an atmospheric foundation on which Gabrielle’s characterful and easily recognisable vocals dance over. Such bold characteristics clearly denote this as the work of Gabrielle Ornate, further cementing her iconic sound as she continues to release powerful songs that are immediately associated with her musical identity.

Taking a step back from the intricacies of this song we notice the skilled production on this song that really breathes life into this release. With so much going on in the song, there is the risk that different layers could become muddy or overpowering – instead, much to Gabrielle’s credit, there is much precision here, allowing the song to sound massive, thereby avoiding the pitfall of becoming too compressed. The end result of this is a song that is not only melodically rich, but a real force of nature that, when listened to with headphones or speakers, takes the listener on a sonic journey.

After such flattery, we’ll try to be concise: this is a superb song by a talented artist and adds to a fast-growing discography that marks Gabrielle Ornate as an artist that can genuinely be predicted for big things over the next few years. In short, if 2021 is anything to go by, then Gabrielle will easily continue this upward trajectory throughout 2022.
