Drella, the brand new, supremely stylized brainchild of Australian-Macedonian singer Bobby Andonov, debuts his fresh persona with an awe-inspiring, sonically shocking dark-pop banger entitled "Until the Morning" to announce his singular presence to the music world.
Andonov, who first rose to fame on Australia's Got Talent in 2010 and additionally after a series of viral YouTube covers and reworks in 2015, sheds his former moniker as he focuses on a new project that is heavily reminiscent of legends like Prince and George Michael. Long renown for a nearly unlimited vocal range, Drella's quivering ultra-falsetto fits luxuriously over a devilish bassline and smoky, club-ready drumbeat. Additionally, the clearly veteran songwriting shines through with memorable quotables like, "Shadows dyed in neon, shine too bright after you're gone" that substantiate the darkly retro vibe that the new project is channeling. Topped off with a bridging guttural scream, this is a song you can't replay fast enough.
When one is blessed with one of the most unique vocal registers in modern music, it only seems right to want to flex that untouchable ability to the masses. "Until the Morning" is the ultimate artistic flex for a brand new project from a world-renown artist. Seemingly with an EP on its way, look for Drella to be Australia's answer to the Weeknd by year's end.
