Cascada - Pyromania

16 May Critic Jonni 0 Comments

Cascada has been reviewed on this blog quite a bit, I think you can probably guess that I am a fan of their music. So I was excited to see this music video being shown on a music channel. But then I got worried, I thought that maybe I had already reviewed it on here. However luckily I hadn't.

Cascada is a dance band from Germany, consisting of Natalie Horler, Manian (Manuel Reuter) and Yanou (Yann Peifer). They have had a number of hits over the years, especially in the UK. They have a new song out, which is bound to chart high, with promotion. I hope "Summer of Love" becomes a big hit.

"Pyromania" was written by RedOne, Allan Eshuijs, Yann Peifer and Manuel Reuter. I was really surprised that RedOne was part of the writing team, I'm also surprised that Cascada doesn't say "RedOne" before the song starts, which you usually find in his written songs. He is the main writer for Lady GaGa, possibly hence the reason why this song has been compared a lot with "Pokerface" amongst other Lady GaGa songs.

This music video, is a big performance piece, but it works so effortlessly, you can't help but like it. There's a lot of choreography going on, and it's nice to see Natalie Horler getting involved with the dancing too, as it's rare to see her do much.

There's a lot to like about this music video. I like how flames are here and there referencing the song as Pyro means fire. Also that hoop swing looks a little on the scary side.

There is quite a few UV lights about which has a nice slight link as the song would definitely have been heard in the dance clubs back then. This song only got to a disappointing number 60 on the UK chart, but that was due to the fact that this was the only promotion they did for the song.

Overall, it's a catchy song, that was definitely worthy of a better charting position. It's music video is a great performance piece and is really interesting. However it's missing that little something, the wow spark. However I could watch it again and again and never get bored with it.
