The annual race for the year’s best spankin’ new artist begins now, and rising Atlanta recording artist Tyler Pauley takes an early lead with a fierce new song “Scarred.” The piano-led track serves as a jumpstarter cut to a string of needed hits to establish anticipation, which will green-light an upcoming project expected for release later this year.
The track’s zesty beat with pulsing bass drums and buoyant vibes create a warm and textural sound that blends the 20-year-old silky transitions into another must-hear hit. The song is inspired by the city of Atlanta's history of producing chart-topping artists who created superstardom with their trendsetting art-imitating-life songwriting, according to Pauley.
On “Scarred,” however, he highlights the artists' ability to tap into multiple genres at will. The song combines potently sad modulating keys with fierce kicks to compliment the jovial ambiance of strings that generates a variety of sensations for the listener’s ear. The track’s unique nature sets Pauley apart from his peers and proves why this year could be a breakout one for the Atlantan.
