It’s hard not to be impressed by ‘When I’m Around You’, the sophomore single from Melbourne-based artist GENES.
The follow-up to her 2019 debut ‘Give It Away’, ‘When I’m Around You’ is another confident step forward in Genes’ career trajectory.
It’s a tale about love; the excitement of meeting that someone new. Fizzing with anticipation of the ‘what ifs’, but with the uneasy thought that the person might not be quite right for you.
“Sometimes you don’t even have to talk about feelings to know,” she explains. “It’s just in the eye contact that lasts a little longer than normal, the built up chemistry on the drive home, the late night texts that feel a bit too comfortable.”
We suspect this won’t be the last you’ll hear of the up and coming pop starlet.
