One of my favourite things to happen in music is when someone juxtaposes a happy-go-lucky song with more melancholy lyrics. It’s a personal thing but I just fall in love with songs that focus on that and Macy Todd’s latest track You Don’t Call Me Anymore is one of the best examples of this you could ever wish to find.
It opens immediately with an uplifting tropical influenced melody that instantly puts a smile on your face and will get your foot tapping along to the alluring beats. Then you’ve got the sadder element of the track that comes from Todd’s vocals, it genuinely feels like you’re sat down with her and she is telling you her story, complete with little laughs that sell this idea perfectly. It’s a mix of everything I love in tracks like these and it’s more than worth a listen.
