Sydney’s Sinclaire shine on their shimmering new single ‘I Need You’, which dropped just yesterday.
Following on from the release of their debut EP in June last year, the awesome foursome ambled back into the studio to start work on some new material.
And ‘I Needed You’ is the first taste.
“On first listen, ‘I Needed You’ feels like a song written about a toxic, dysfunctional relationship between two people,” frontman Michael Cross explains. “Reciting abusive encounters and unstable dependency on one another, it’s a detailed depiction of everything that would be unhealthy in a relationship.
“However, it’s actually a story about one person’s addiction to alcohol. For example, the lyric “the last time I held you I forgot every word that I said”, is really referring to the memory loss brought on by excessive drinking.”
Michael’s vocal is soft and sweet; juxtaposed with bouncy, contemporary pop production.
It’s super listenable – and quite the bop for your weekend.
