Nino Bisignano, “You Like Me” (2015): One Track Mind

Share this:

As evidenced by the Initiative’s smashing self-titled debut album from 2013, the Australian band has the ability to write and play an amazingly vast range of musical modes. Be it pop, jazz, blues, country, gospel, or rock, the Initiative has something for everybody.

As a means of promoting their album to even wider audiences, the band has been producing videos of songs from the record and putting them on the internet, with the latest treat being “You Like Me,” featuring Nino Bisignano on lead vocals.

Snapping his fingers and swaying with ease, Nino strikes a suave pose in relation to the genre of music he is performing. Jiving and thriving to a ream of swinging rhythms, Nino Bisignano’s “You Like Me” sounds like a song Frank Sinatra or Bobby Darin would have included in their hip cat repertoires. Sweet and merry Andrews Sisters styled choruses also escort the song, as well as clutching guitar notes and clinking and blinking piano excursions.

Radiating with bliss, “You Like Me” is proof in the pie that crooner pop will never die. Equipped with a smooth and strong voice, Nino Bisignano further possesses a noble presence, making him the ideal front man.

Clap your hands and scream for more!
