Unless you’ve been living out by the barred spiral galaxy of Cepheus, Solarstone’s astonishing ‘. . – – -‘ transmission won’t have failed to have reached you. Lead single ‘Thank You’ turned up its frequency and now – as summer hits the fast lane – ‘I Want You Here’ increases the bandwidth.
Rich has given the single an Club Mix expansion that, over nine minutes, finds yet greater still emotional reach in Thea Riley’s voice and song. Producer and singer in perfect synchronicity, ‘I Want You Here’ drops today.
Walking the tightrope between the track’s exposed lyrics and its impassioned delivery, Thea pulls off a nuanced balancing act. With its verses imploring and heartfelt, Australian singer dials into extraordinary levels of introspection, whilst reserving its most eminently touching & impossible-to-ignore moments for the chorus.
Through his Club Mix’s production, Rich mirrors each expressive arc in simpatico. Warm, break-of-dawn synths, strings and temperate chords engage with its skiff-ling percussion & tinkling sub-melodies. As the bass rolls in and its pianoforte chimes, no lyrical/vocal wrench goes unreciprocated.
