Accepting both the light and dark sides of ourselves can channel true vulnerability and a power in individuality. Ontario-based artist Eric Punzo expresses his own truths through his new single “Criminal.”
The song puts forward both exceptional power as well as an authentic performance that exemplifies true introspection. Filled with heavy drums, a grooving bassline, and enchanting synth pads, the production is a well-crafted arrangement that compliments Punzo’s top line and delivers a standout performance on it’s own. All of these elements coupled with a catchy melody showcase all the strengths surrounding the artist’s pure art. Lyrics like “I’ve been living like a sinner you can see it in the way I smile” and “something I said I really hope it was delightful, insightful, cuz I don’t remember” glances into Punzo’s headspace as he navigates through his own demons, achievements, and opinions that define the life he’s truly living.
