Melody guides as an organic piano introduction elevates the increasingly emotive and passionate In Love With You, from hip hop artist Vintage The Audio.
Rhythm is a crucial element, but that retro-keys opener and the simultaneously raw presentation paves the way with intrigue and creativity – towards what ultimately appears to incorporate a fusion of influences from across the genre’s history.
Featuring cleanly-mixed verses and storytelling that’s both unique and relatable, the song always resolves back to its hook – something of a dissonant moment, grittier than expected and more heavily mixed than the verse, furthering that fearlessly creative edge.
Later we also get nostalgic synths for yet more sound-play, and the whole thing continues to revel in the energy of the relentlessly melodic backdrop.
Promising a fresh take on the modern love song, blending surface level gratitude with dashes of deeper romance, In Love With You proves a carefree reinvention of the wheel, and introduces Vintage The Audio with identity and versatility.
