Smooth and emotive vibes from the outset create a mellow, immersive and contemporary sound, as Myles James crafts an intimate and melodic Drugs.
Leading with a simple riff, reverb-kissed alongside a light rhythm that pans through cinematically, Drugs offers a soulfully expressive vocal, and fragments of additional voice for further passionate impact as the details pour through.
Introducing Myles James in a memorable way, Drugs feels quickly relevant to the current scene, but also showcases a faultless vocal ability – as well as a clearly poetic way with exploring the topic of love and infatuation.
Myles lays bare a stunning delivery, delicate and engaging, meandering through the sections of the song with varying weight – as per the changing intensity of the lyrics.
The bridge prior to the finish smooths things out all the more so, leaning towards emo rap as a final creative alternative to the otherwise classic RnB style of Myles’ long-form verses.
Beautiful, a fine fusion of genres and a crisp, emotive listen that refreshes amidst the current pop landscape.
