LA Music Review | Art, stories and advice
Heartbreaking yet hopeful and truly remarkable!
Krantz is a rocker at heart who prides himself on writing, recording, and producing his work with little regard for what is “in.” This has led the artist to completely subvert the rock and indie genres into his own sound that has led him to MTV’s American Supergroup and the creation of the band he currently makes music with. “Louisiana” puts Krantz at the forefront on an alternative rock ballad that feels fitting in today’s climate as much as it would work in the early 2000s.
“Louisiana” released on November 5 is a melancholy ballad that draws from the artist’s influences and experiences as a rock artist. As the story opens, listeners are drawn into the intoxicating world of the Big Easy and the woman the singer has fallen for. Immediately, the positive ambience of the instrumentals create a fascinating juxtaposition to the lyrics that convey a longing that is all too familiar for anyone who’s ever been in a rut influenced by where they are. As Krantz stays in New Orleans, he only wishes to flee after his heart is broken and everything about his surroundings are tainted. As he tries to find solace in the city, he finds nothing will solve the situation except leaving for good.
