With a heartfelt lyricism and a super-slow triplet feel, Chersea creates a simmering pendulum of deep soul that rocks back and forth to impressive climax. The vocal is bright and full of very natural embellishments backing a gorgeous melody.
The elements here feel like a smart combination of throwback groove with sliced-up loops, and the added layers are there to keep it interesting as the song develops. If you like Amy Winehouse as much as you like KT Tunstall, this one is for you.
