A song that begins with the pitter-patter of rain drops on your windowsill. Already an evocative picture that makes you think of sitting by the phone, waiting for your loved one to call, perhaps after an argument.
A feeling we’ve all gone through, at some point in our lives, and one that emerging artist SheIsL1 sums up perfectly in her brand new track ‘Love Surrender’.
Her voice, quiet as a whisper, sidles up your ears and entices you to listen. Maybe lean in a little, so as to hear her better. With SheIsL1, you’re always getting the feeling she’s just getting ready to whisper a little secret into your ear and you’re constantly trying to be ready for it.
Strangely enough, the secret itself never arrives, but what does come is a four minute track that blasts you with a wide mix of feelings. It’s sexy, sure, that’s obvious from the first beat of the song, from SheIsL1’s slinky, seductive voice. But it’s not just that. It’s also secretive, creating this unique, intimate atmosphere, making you feel as if it’s just you two here, conversing, and not you listening to your Spotify playlist.
‘Love Surrender’ captures the delectable intimacy of love, and though there are many (too many, sometimes) songs that deal with the complicated matter of love, few actually manage to embody it so well.
There is also something fearful inside this track, as if she’d afraid to confide in you. Afraid of getting caught, of being hurt or perhaps vulnerable, that’s up to the listener’s interpretation, but one thing is certain and that is, the song is filled with emotion. Passion. Feeling. Something so rare on the music scene these days.
Though young, SheIsL1 has already managed to make quite a name for herself, rapidly gathering quite a following for herself, with albums like ‘Cosmic Love’ (2018), ‘Meditation’ (2019) and now, her latest album ‘Love Surrender’ (2020), fresh out of the studio!
