SINGLE REVIEW: Vérité – Phase Me Out
In 2016 Vérité intrigued and captivated me with her brutally honest and experimental EP “Living” as well as her bold cover of The 1975’s “Somebody Else”. She quickly established herself as an artist you have to watch and I’m very glad we didn’t have to wait too long to get more new music. “Phase Me Out” is the first single from what I’m assuming is a new EP (But really I’m praying for a full length debut album, please and thank you) and she serves you early Tove Lo vibes and ridiculous vocals. Beginning with a dark synth as her vocals dominate your attention the song’s production adds bass, percussion and larger synths to create that big moment you want. The lyrics detail the questioning of a relationship where you don’t exactly know or like where it is heading. “Stand up straight with my back against the wall. Keep me still and wondering just why we fall. Don’t you want to stay here or do you want to phase me out”. The song grows on you with each listen and what really keeps you intrigued is her unique vocal delivery. There is just something about her vocals that are haunting and magical and it keeps you going back for more. This is probably the most pop we have heard her yet and translates as the perfect introduction to people who have just discovered her because of her The 1975 cover. 2017 is already proving to be a great year of music and Vérité is definitely an artist you need to keep tabs on.
