I’m enjoying this song “This Is The New Year” from hot rising New York City artist Ian Axel. He’s experienced a quick rise to fame since MTV’s new show, I Used To Be Fat picked it as it’s theme song. For all you hipster snobs out there, don’t rule the song out because of that. This song has genuine heart and soul, and I don’t think many people can deny that. Ian reminds me a bit of a younger Ben Folds.
This is a song that has potential to be a chart topping hit. It’s well written, has a catchy melody that’s just waiting to be discovered, and it flirts with the dramatic. This is that type of song that you will hear on the radio in a few months and remember when you first discovered it. It’s already clearly been recognized, but I have a feeling that Ian Axel’s rise to fame has only just begun.
“This Is The New Year” has all the qualities of a hit song that will have legs. You will be hearing a lot of it in the next few months. You can’t help but root for a guy like Ian Axel who has clearly worked his ass off to get to this point.
