Hot Video Alert: Brock Zanrosso - Perfect Storm
Back in February, I posted about a Canadian singer named Brock Zanrosso. The talented youn singer appeared on Canadian TV in the reality competition, Next Star, and went on to release two singles with the help of Hipjoint Productions (Kreesha Turner, Kelly Rowland). Going in a decidedly more pop/R&B direction along the lines of Jesse McCartney and Blake McGrath, Zanrosso's latest single, "Perfect Storm" is as catchy now as it was when I first heard it.
In my last post, I expressed concern that Zanrosso could easily be lumped in with any number of reality TV pop stars (i.e. David Archuleta, Adam Lambert), and today I still have those very same reservations. The song's electro-pop feel definitely vibes closer to Adam Lambert territory, but Zanrosso's prescence isn't anywhere near as flamboyant as Lambert's. Now - I'm not saying he needs to BE Adam Lambert. No, absolutely not! I'm just saying that, if you're going to go ELECTRO pop you gotta go all the way and I don't think "Perfect Storm" is a strong enough vehicle for that. As far as the video is concerned, Zanrosso definitely does get a little bit freaky in the recently released video for "Perfect Storm," I think he could have gotten a bit (dare I say it) freakier?
That being said...the song is still catchy. I think I was just hoping that the video would push me in a firm "YAY" or "NAY" direction and it unfortunately didn't. Check out the video for "Perfect Storm" below and download it on iTunes HERE.
