SINGLE REVIEW: “Come Around” by Stevie

Stevie1

The fantastic new single from STEVIE is called “Come Around” and it is a brilliant slice of pop music. I am in love with this song and it’s one of the freshest things I’ve heard in 2014. The song is a wonderful rush of bliss that plugs into the kind of romantic yearning that drips from a 1990’s Degrassi Junior High nostalgia hit. It is seriously divine and I can’t wait to hear more from this band. The real star of this song is Phoebe Imhoff who continues to weave tales of melancholy through the sweet sting of her voice. Vocally, Imhoff has a classic ache to her delivery and the angst that hangs off her heartbreak gives character to the music. I’m a firm believer that sometimes the sad songs have to escape from your soul with the kind of joyful celebration displayed on “Come Around” because that is when it truly resonates. The exhaustion of heartbreak is fundamentally always soundtracked by the slow dirge but once you’ve wallowed you need to escape and this is song is the perfect dirge rebound.

What does that all mean?

It’s quite simple really, as a singer Imhoff has managed to avoid the redundancy of noisy guitar music to release one of the most heartbreaking songs of 2014 and after being sent a ton of white middle class sad rock boy music this year it is a refreshing burst of bummer sunshine.

I really hope that STEVIE boycott the EP and really commit to making a full length album.
