The Native Sibling – “How To Win” Reaction

Community Rating1 Vote

“How To Win” is a charmingly quaint song by the brother and sister folk duo The Native Sibling.

It’s a song that’s charged with a very contagious energy, streaming from its straight and repetitive, but catchy rhythm that seamlessly carries the listener from the beginning to the end of the song. What makes “How To Win” really stick is the melancholic vocals which soar against the contrasting upbeat rhythm – an odd, but very masterfully carried out combination. The brother joins just at the right times, and the two singers evoke somewhat of a musical dialogue, a storyline even, which adds another nuance to the song, commanding the listener’s attention throughout.

There’s some simplistic, but very melodic piano as well which gives the song extra flavor – a nice poignancy which accentuates perfectly the overall feel.

If you have to put a label on "Freaks" and "Clouds Collide," it would be Neo-Classicism. But as with most experimental, great music, labels don't suffice.
"Away" by Historian is the musical version of the word “away”, but in a palpably off-beat, darker context. A perfect song for a vampire film.
Florence + The Machine have produced a superb song here and it's a hard thing not to appreciate.

The melancholic verses flow beautifully into a very gusty chorus which feels like the singer is breaking free from her sadness, with her gentle, but powerful voice soaring like a bird that has flown out of its cage. It’s what makes “How To Win” really stick, as otherwise this gloomy vibe would have lost its charm. It’s like a special spice which gives a meal the aftertaste that makes you want more.

“How To Win” is imbued with a lot of nuanced emotions which seamlessly flow from one to the other in sweet harmony. It sounds simple and unassuming, yet it alludes to The Native Sibling’s musical chemistry, maturity, and straight-up talent.
