Vocal depth and slowly building passion unite throughout a mesmerising, powerful soundscape as Dalia Lily gets poetic and deeply honest for Hear Me.
Unique in its approach to the concept and delivery, though well-rooted amidst the production and creativity of pop, Hear Me evolves consistently throughout a post-four-minute lifespan. What begins as a likeable, intriguing single, soon becomes a mighty and inspiring hit of escapism – complete with a superb instrumental breakaway that proves a welcomed drop into world-music detail and melody.
Somewhat oriental in its hypnotic, multi-layered realm of voice and synth and tribal rhythms, Hear Me consistently improves its connection with and indeed hold over its audience. The latter half furthers the lyrical intrigue of the opening moments, so the final drop into bliss really hits with impact thanks to that shift and that last injection of contrast.
Fantastic, a refreshing take on contemporary pop, lush writing and production, with a clear degree of depth and purpose – which reaches out to connect in a profoundly human, inspiring and memorable way.
