Sometimes simplicity is key, and Warm Blizzard has this down to a tee on his latest release. Love Me Now fills the room for merely a minute and a half, but really that’s all that’s needed to let this smooth beat and entrancing melody weave their way into your mind.
Love Me Now is an easy to enjoy piece of music and writing. With each new listen it shines a little more brightly. There’s a classic and somewhat nostalgic backdrop to the track – the beat takes its time to build, offering delicacy and a dreamlike ambiance before the melody and the beat kick in. Other factors feel firmly rooted among today’s sound though – the switch from the melodic to the rapped, the drop from gentleness to rhythm and weight. All of this is subtle, but it works. The song deals with a specific subject matter, it drives with a clear intention and underlying sentiment, and it holds close to that every step of the way.
By the time the track is over, you’re familiar with it – you’ll recognise it again. This subtle ear-worm quality is surprisingly effective. In addition, the quietness and character of that leading voice help reinforce the intimacy of the writing – the personal touch stands tall and lets the whole thing connect on a more genuine level.
It’s a smooth single, brief but beautiful and easy to let surround you. Hopefully there’s more music on the way.
