“Treason” is a brilliantly produced song that nails on the head right from the outset, opening gorgeously with pleasant melodic chords and strings before being accompanied by a piano harmonic progression. A modest snare and kick drum rhythm then enters the delicate composition and attracts the listener and very much begins to get you moving before Alba Rose’s lovely vocals come in with a wonderful flair for finding and interpreting the melody in this tune. Her vocals are flawless, with incredible richness and delivery with lyrics that are intelligent and genuine. On the converse, the catchy and captivating melodies of the song give it a complete impression.
In terms of “Treason,” the lyrics describe a lady who has nothing to offer anymore and is overwhelmed with humiliation in her head. It’s also a song about treachery and the guilt-tripping that results from it. With this tune, we can almost feel the betrayal and the emotions as the lyrics are so candid, honest, and real that you don’t feel excluded. The warmth in the beat is very comfortable and calming, and it merges seamlessly with the vocals to convey the information.
Overall, “Treason” is a work of art. Everything is top-notch, from the production to the way the vocalist expresses the content and how it is delivered. The tone quality of the instruments is superb, and the playing is wonderful.
