It’s a laid-back soul-groove with a monophonic synth bass on the chorus, showcasing a smooth and sophisticated vocal finesse and an aggressive bass line. Romy Dya dances her way around the lead melody with a lyrical abandon that is the hallmark of soul.
The roots feel from the band, the simple and wide open verse lays the foundation for the massive lift from the chorus: the swinging sin wave bass, the melodic figure, the heightened energy. And then it falls away to just a heartbeat, and that funky vocal.
Romy Dya is a singer and songwriter from the Netherlands. This song is featured on our CHILL NEW Songwriters playlist.
