Review by Dylan Lloyd & Staff
Kacy Fifield’s new song “Toxic” is an extremely danceable electropop track that combines a clear modern pop vocal sound with deep electronic instrumentation. The vocal performance is crisp, rhythmic and fresh. The instrumental production done by Nippandab elevates this song with the curation of sounds and effects that are perfectly used together on this dance/pop track. The atmospheric introduction brings the listener in and sets the sonic stage for the electronic instrumentation.
The lyrics on “Toxic” that were co-written by Kacy Fifield and her vocal coach Robbie Rosen focus on emotions that are felt when dealing with a problematic and difficult relationship. Lyric lines that speak directly about this failed relationship situation include “Lately you just blame me on the daily, swearing I’m the reason for our bitter ending” and “Oh I’ll never get your logic, You’re just toxic”. The passionate performance of the chorus vocals along with the four-on-the-floor dance beat make the listener want to join in singing right along with the lyrics on this track.
Overall, “Toxic” by Kacy Fifield would make a great addition to any modern pop, electronic, or dance hit playlist. The infectious synth bassline and the focused drum groove create a great rhythmic combination that drives the song along. Although the lyrics focus on a more serious subject, the urge to dance and sing along to this song about a toxic relationship is irresistible!
