By: Rob Perez (Three Beers) –
When originally released earlier this year, I didn’t think there was any need to touch it up, but that’s what Michael P. Cullen has done with his mesmerizing single “Do You Believe” by adding an even more moodier, more haunting mix that works really well. It still contains some of the original hypnotic, haunting melodies that this Australian singer/songwriter first grabbed our attention with. The goth-inspired single asks listeners about love, believing in love and why. Adding Cullen’s deep vocals and dark, mysterious sound, it’s almost hard to believe “Do You Believe” is a ballad, albeit a ballad with a sad twist. It centers on relationships, the darker parts of it, but does so unapologetically.
It’s not an easy one to listen to at first, but on the second or third listen, with three beers, you’ll start to get it, feel it, and maybe like it. But with Cullen’s amazing vocals, and the nice production work on “Do You Believe”, we think you’ll like it.
