“All Gas, No Brakes” Feliciano Turbo-Charged Summer Anthem

Rincon, Puerto Rico’s Feliciano has outdone himself again with his latest release, the infectious and sun-drenched single, “All Gas, No Brakes.” Harnessing influences from indie pop titans of the late 2000s like Cut Copy and Empire of The Sun, Feliciano crafts his very own heady brew of Electropop, that conjures buoyant, nostalgia-induced images of glorious summer days gone by.

As the track opens, a synth line as warm as a Puerto Rican sunrise ushers you in, into a soundscape effused with carefree euphoria. It impeccably molds the retro futurism of the 2000s Electropop revival, the nuanced keyboard arrangements reminiscent of PNAU’s color-popping sonics, overlaid on a rhythm section that effortlessly swings between laid back indie-rock beats and vibrant dancefloor pulsations.

Feliciano’s vocals, inherently nimble yet delicately emotive, serve as the heart and soul of this radiant single. His voice, capable of making even the simplest lyrics brim with sincerity, does indeed justice to the lyrics rooted in the joys of summer love and carefree confidence. He sings, “With you, it’s all gas no brakes, full speed as we hug the lanes, summer kisses fuel the pace,” capturing a reckless abandon that only the most intoxicating love can inspire.
