Remember Melanie’s 1971 #1 hit “Brand New Key” –she had that unusual, child-like voice?
“I’ve got a brand new roller skate, you’ve got a brand new key”
Lauren Mayberry from the Scottish pop-rock band Chvrches (yes..it’s spelled that way..a V instead of a U) also has a funny little voice–not as distinctive as Melanie’s, but unusual just the same, and you can hear her on “Here with Me,” a song about falling in love–the window when life’s routine, mundane tasks take on new and significant meaning.
Can I tell you something just between you and me?
When I hear your voice, I know I’m finally free
Every single word is perfect as it can be
And I need you here with me
When you lift me up, I know that I’ll never fall
I can speak to you by saying nothing at all
“Here with Me” is the creation of Marshmello (given name Christopher Comstock) –a HOT DJ/producer who collaborates with artists such as Selena Gomez and Anne-Marie –he helped Bastille’s”Happier” become a hit.
“Here With Me” is currently #16 with a bullet on Top 40 radio– we’re confident it’ll reach at least Top 10; it’s #32 on Adult Top 40, also with a bullet.
