The song uses two different vocal registers, chest voice and mixed voice. It is important to work on the transition between these two registers so that the song sounds natural and fluid.

Plays KO of Electro deluxe Vocals and Guitar: the verses

The verses of the Song of KO by Electro Deluxe are characterized by a dynamic and punchy rhythm which requires a good mastery of vocal technique to be performed successfully. To sing verses well, it is important to have clear articulation of the consonants so that the words are understood by the audience. The consonants must be pronounced clearly and precisely, without being exaggerated, so as not to alter the fluidity of the song.

In addition, it is essential to project the vowels well so that the voice is heard well and the emotion of the song can be transmitted to the audience. Voice projection is achieved in part through constant and regular breathing. It is therefore important to work on your breathing to maintain good vocal quality throughout the song.

The performance of the verses must also be in accordance with the rhythm of the song. Pauses and syncopations must be respected so that the singing sounds natural and groovy. It is therefore important to understand the rhythm of the song and internalize it before starting to sing it.

However, perfect pitch must be maintained so that the notes sound clear and harmonious. It is therefore important to work on your vocal placement and accuracy in order to master these passages in particular.

On the other hand, the words “K! O!” are sung with power and projection, to give a more impactful and catchy dimension to the song. It is important to articulate the consonants well so that the message is clear and understandable, and to pay attention to the accuracy of the notes so that the chorus sounds true and memorable.

Finally, it is important to understand the structure of the choruses and their alternation with the verses to give a coherent interpretation of the song. The rhythm must be well defined to give a catchy and groovy effect to the melody, while remaining in line with the emotion that the song wants to convey.
