Single review by Mike O’Cull www.mikeocull.com
Wendy Halo’s recent single “Compromise” is a smooth and powerful piece of pop music that uses an understated hook and a simmering beat to evoke an atmosphere of class and passion. Working from Marbella, Spain, Halo has become something of a breakout artist whose name and fame are both rapidly expanding. She connects well with pop fans everywhere thanks to her strong vocals and exotic beauty, both of which have helped “Compromise” run up almost 150,000 views on YouTube, alone.
The track is a quiet anthem of empowerment and boundaries in a difficult relationship and Halo speaks her piece and stands her ground. The production is outstanding, encasing Wendy’s beautiful voice in a sleek, velvety environment that conjures up deep thoughts and images of late-night city skylines. She’s an incredibly soulful vocalist with tone and taste who never lets her chops overtake her song. Wendy Halo is perfectly positioned right now to get herself in the ears of millions of pop fans and, if she has more songs like this, that success is only a matter of time. Spin this tonight and absorb every line.
