One half of the duo Public Display of Affection, an act formed with his wife, Charlie Barrale celebrates the undeniable impact of true love with the beautifully uplifting new single For Me.
Showcasing a raw blues-rock and country edge, For Me brings through organic musicianship and stunning vocals that quickly invite interest in a live show.
The set-up is powerful, emotive and immersive – increasingly enveloping the listener as the melody progresses and the layers evolve to raise the pace. Here we get new instances of rhythm, bends and slides, subtle touches of production.
All the while, Barrale highlights a simple yet effective way with song writing – short lines that build up towards a passionate and energising hook.
A refreshing take on the classic love song, with country roots and a real-time approach to intimacy and scene-setting – For Me tells a personal story or unexpected circumstances, but does so in a broadly accessible way; the perfect balance for offering a romantic and inclusive new hit.
Brilliant, I look forward to hearing more – and hopefully catching a live show.
