While uplifting, the track does have a more sombre beginning as the delicate story revolves around losing someone close to you.
‘Water’ has this opening that seems to be a cinematic build-up that gives way to Eyre’s vocals. It is a very captivating opening that really grabs your attention while highlighting the light and gentle tone of her vocals. This opening leads you to an engaging vocal performance that gets you moving to the beat. The smoother and slower verses let you appreciate her vocals while the chorus has a more dance beat to them where her vocals soar.
