    Carole Sylvan’s “Savin’ Up for Your Love”

    Carole Sylvan’s “Savin’ Up for Your Love” is an on-point soul/R&B influenced winner. The single culled from Sylvan’s new EP release Something Goin’ On is attempting to remake the songwriting wheel but, instead, aims to please audiences with a track that recalls the best efforts in this style without ever imitating anyone. The abundant humor of the song is another huge selling point, but anyone studying such a thing should note how Sylvan is careful to never cheapen it with overwrought touches. She lets the humor of the song even play itself out convincingly in the song’s accompanying video.


    She has a wallop of a voice, able to rivet a listener’s attention without amplification, but it’s clear she’s attentive to matching her voice with the music. The backing track is archetypal mix of swinging percussion and slow-burn guitar and keys. Bass maintains a steady heartbeat without ever sounding omnipresent. The guitar brings another factor into play as well with its brief solo during the track’s second half. It strikes the right note without ever pushing the performance into parody.

    The video’s premise won’t make you roll your eyes, and the humor presses the right buttons. There isn’t anything even remotely distasteful or risqué in the clip’s imagery. Instead, Sylvan makes viewers her partners in the song’s sentiments, enlisting their loyalties, and it makes for an even more enjoyable performance. The cinematography of the video is every bit as direct as the song’s message and it’s among the elements that help makes this video an excellent promotional tool.

    It is Sylvan’s vocal, however, that commands the spotlight. She knows where to lay emphasis on her phrasing, when to coax a response from the listener, and how to blend the timbre of her voice in with the musical backing. She is part of a band, however, rather than a singer superimposing herself on the arrangement, and effortlessly holds listeners’ attention. There is nothing stagy or overcooked about the way she tackles this song.

    The video will make even the hardest heart smile. It’s a broad comedy but never so overwrought that it seems cartoonish. Many viewers will appreciate the comic fare and how it always stays grounded in an exaggerated reality everyone can relate to in some way. The filming of the video pays off for viewers with a robust and colorful clip that holds your attention from beginning to end.

    Sylvan commands viewers’ attention from the outset. It isn’t any stretch to say that, if she had chosen a different path, she could have likely enjoyed a successful career as an actress. The well-chosen props, wardrobe, and assorted visuals scattered throughout the clip certainly enhances the song’s overall impact. Carole Sylvan obviously began filming this video with its creative vision locked in place and, along with her collaborators, deserves enormous credit for realizing its potential.

    It sets her up in a unique position. She isn’t a genre artist alone as the emotions explored during this song are universal in scope and portrayed in a non-pretentious way. This new single will play to a niche audience, yes, but it has an appeal that reaches far beyond the confines of the soul and R&B world to create a truly entertaining musical experience. It holds up as well and invites multiple listens rather than sounding disposable like so many other modern songs. Let’s hope she follows it up soon with additional single releases as it certainly helps generate momentum for her new EP Something Goin’ On.
