Professionally known as STVB, Canadian singer, songwriter, and producer Steve Bosch has just released the fifth single from this darker solo creative project. “Made Up My Mind” is a song “about a bold, undeniable new relationship about to unfold.” Lyrically you can hear the committed nature the protagonist feels toward this object of desire: “I want you more / I’ve been looking for you / all this time / I don’t need no guarantee/ I took one look and made up my mind.”
The composition of the track itself is not as committed as the lyrics. Rather, it is a mind-bending blend of trap, hip-hop, and pop that hits the ground running from the first second and doesn’t stop delivering some new sonic texture until the track ends at two minutes, fifty-three seconds.
This highly anticipated track was recorded by the multi-Juno nominated producers Brad Simons and Brandon Unis of Tower and is expected to find its way to radio and be supported by a forthcoming festival tour. Fans of The Weeknd and Charlie Puth are likely to identify with STVB’s music.
STVB says in the resounding chorus, “I want you and I’ve made up my mind,” and that’s exactly how you’ll feel about “Made Up My Mind” after listening. The track is available now on all major platforms and on the Alchemical Records MultiGenre Mixture Spotify Playlist.
