Musically, “Something’s Got to Give” is a cool mix of styles. At its heart the song is a bit of acoustic Dark Pop set to a Lo-Fi Hip-hop beat. As the track progresses Alan Graham flexes his bar band Rock & Roll muscles with some well placed electric guitar leads. Subtle piano and strings supply the tune with just the right amount of cinematic drama. This mix of styles is no coincidence as Alan’s list of influences covers the spectrum of popular music. He cites artists as varied as Avenged Sevenfold, Lewis Capaldi and Billie Eilish as inspirations.
