Attu’s strength is Stefan Antoinette’s voice.
What we mean by that is that Stefan’s sometimes ‘vulnerable’ attributes and vocal distresses make the songs (i.e. Staying Together) work as it does.
“Staying Together” is in a weird relationship, where it seems like it’s been secluded into a veritable “Friendzone” (yes, that friendzone). But the vocals help it (slowly but surely) break out of that dreaded Friendzone and helps it become a good Lover – a lover that is accepted, caressed, and maybe a bit cherished by the significant other.
Goodbye Friendzone. Hello, “other-than-friendzone”.
It’s a good thing and a good song.
