After a string of new releases and dropping live versions of her previous tracks, Vera Blue is ready to enchant you again with album number two. With her sophomore record expected later this year, she is beginning this new musical chapter with an experimental offering. ‘The Way That You Love Me’ explores bad relationship behaviour and takes you a bold new self-discovery of her artistry.
Taking inspiration from ‘Lady Powers’ and ‘Like I Remember You’, she explores a moody electronic soundscape full of big synths and DIY beats. It’s a song that doesn’t have a lot of commercial potential but it does perfectly suit Triple J with a BANKS inspired melody.
Diving deep into toxicity she delivers some big imagery that is powerful and emotive. The chorus is simple and effective with her confessing “How can’t you see? How can’t you see? That it’s the way, it’s the way, it’s the way, it’s the way that you love me”.
It’s a bold beginning for this new chapter in Vera Blue’s career and it will be interesting to see where she sonically goes from here.
