The melodic arrangement has you relaxing in the chilled vibes only to beckon you down the forest path of self-discovery. The music is full-on and does not let up for a moment which is utterly wonderful as you vibe to it throughout the track.
Sliding in over the melody is Jay’s vocals which bring a greater touch of dreaminess. While her voice is a light touch the lyrics have a dash of darkness to them. There is a rise and fall to her performance that brings a contrast of light and dark to your ears. This is perfectly matched to the messaging of the track as you dive into the dark parts of yourself and embrace it all. When her voice rises and soars into the soundscape on the chorus, she pulls you further into her musical realm. This is an extremely addictive single that you can’t help but want to listen to again and again.
