Raspy, expressive vocals meet with a colourful bounce of a beat for this uplifting new single from Ade Adu.
Despite the acoustic guitar image – Ade being a renowned indie solo performer – there’s actually a noteworthy electronic production quality to this single. The completed piece offers multiple layers of detail and optimism, which essentially help reinforce the love and longing nature of the lyrics.
Blending a touch of dancehall with a few contemporary EDM traits, Come Back is an anthem that invites movement as well as consideration of reconciliation. Ade calls out for a second chance, driving with a softly seductive, genuine vocal line, and a likeable sense of hopefulness that shines brightly throughout.
Adding just enough personality and individuality to his style, both performance and writing-wise, Ade Adu introduces himself into the 2020 pop world in a relatable yet subtly refreshing way.
From a songwriting perspective, this single does everything it needs to – that catchy hook being a huge part of what lets the whole thing linger in your mind after listening. His unique stamp on this sound-wise effectively injects a whole other layer of value into the release. Nicely done.
