As they keep on teasing their upcoming debut record Best Days, the rocking supergroup The Project are teaming up with singer Mykele Hill on their latest single What’s It Going To Take that was out on the 19th of January 2024. Bringing back the real essence and energy of rock n roll’s golden era, The Project are taking us on an authentic guitar-driven, irresistibly engaging experience. Let me tell you more about it. 

The Project’s What’s It Going To Take takes an 80s rock ballad approach with powerful, hooking vocals and a slowly cooked progression, moving forward with heart-hitting vocal harmonies and fluid streaming melodies organically crafting an escalating structure with an open sound and smooth catchy dynamics. What’s It Going To Take has a subtle, groovy bassline that goes hand in hand with its entertaining jazzy drumline, both combined with the rocking guitar work and Mykele Hill’s captivating, charismatic vocals created an instant classic that sent me back to hard rock’s glory days. The Project’s detailed guitar work and perfect tone had me hooked and following its sound shifts, maintaining a warm sound as it freely moved from heavy riffs to melodic folky ones without compromising the song’s mellow emotional core.

What’s It Going To Take is an extremely well-written and arranged tune by The Project that clearly shows their deep rocking roots and high attention to detail. It’s a heartfelt ballad that takes over the listeners’ senses, leaving them playing it over and over as it slips into their “On Repeat” playlist. I’ll definitely be looking forward to more from The Project, keep on rocking. Cheers!
