Carson Ferris proves he’s an old soul, which is the main reason why we dig his music, with his follow up single “1999”
The track is a nostalgia filled bop about relating to people and making connections, and also wanting to relive past times and experiences
1999 is a highly danceable pop song starting with its catchy melody that will instantly get you up on your feet dancing as you go back in time to the 90’s
Carson’s high-quality vocals perfectly fit with the vibe as it significantly impacts your listening experience showcasing his unique talent despite being 13 years old
The lyrics are so relatable, referencing the time period and the whole vibe of the song. Producer Mykyl leaned in to the late 90s feeling drawing inspiration from Backstreet Boys, *NSYNC, Brittany Spears and even the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. The song simultaneously feels like it could literally belong in the past, while also sounding fresh and current.
The musical arrangement is packed with rhythm, harmonies, and a variety of instruments used playing a key role in enhancing the song’s mood
1999 is the follow up single to Crazy, which was released in June of this year, written by an amazing team that includes Paulina “PAU” Cerrilla, Nate Jolley, Michael Van Wagoner, and, of course, Carson Ferris. Earlier this year another song that PAU worked on, Antifragile by the K-Pop act LE SSERAFIM was released to much acclaim, racking up over 300 million streams on Spotify so far.
