There is nothing more satisfying than the call of a bouncing beat paired with incredibly cool vocal delivery.
Normally, I gauge my interest through the non-lyrical elements of a tune. But Piem and Richard Ulh have flipped the script on me. Because what makes “Your Name” really shines is the appearance of not one but two very different lyric lines. The first is intensely sexy, bubbling over with the essence of R&B meets lounge. The second vocal line matches the character of the story while delivering on the deep underground feel with a low octave voice that repeats…”A hyp” (or hypocrite as described by the first vocal).
Through a fun-filled game of vocal tag, the listener is able to stay completely engaged in the multiple layers of sentiment that “Your Name” represents. If you pay attention, you discover a tale about a pissed-off lover staying cool and collected as she releases her disdain while the male vocal delivers the house-centric quirk. But on the other side, the beat puts us into a pocket of festive uplift, bringing this tune full circle as both emotionally reflective and undoubtedly danceable.
