Soft, sweet and angelic vocals elicit instant goosebumps as the ever-gorgeous beabadoobee intros on the latest track from fellow Dirty Hit label partner No Rome’s latest ‘Hurry Home’.
Bursting at the seams with feeling, “your lips your lips your lips yeah / you’re in you’re in you’re in my head yeah” coats a hauntingly heartbreaking scene of pure love and emotion over a gentle acoustic. As No Rome joins the texture starts to spread into scattered hip-hop beat before Jay Som sends us over the edge with a devastating verse, “we gotta make it work / we could fix it if you want too”, the song navigates a relationship on the very edge of breaking down.
In true No Rome fashion, the track is drenched in hard-hitting baselines, swirling synths and twinkling overlays of it’s featured vocals creating a dark-pop dreamworld that tugs at the heartstrings. In his first release of 2020, it encapsulates the nagging energy of how distance can affect our closest relationships and the desperation of finding a way to make it work no matter what, it’s a poignant feeling during the current global climate as couples everywhere struggle to navigate the difficulties of distance.
