“The basis of the song is trust and honesty. I wanted to pay homage to 90’s R&B using those swooping melodies in the chorus and sombre yet sweet production that sets the scene for the story.”
After experimenting in the studio with hotly tipped producer XVR BLCK (credits include Bobii Lewis, Ryan De La Cruz and ShezAr), Basheba returns with new material inspired by the sounds of 90s RnB and contemporary bass production. The sublime ‘Come Back To Me’ is the first in a series of releases from the North Londoner this summer.
Known for combining break beat and jungle rhythms in previous work, ‘Come Back To Me’ marks an evolution in sound for the young artist. Her ‘from the heart’ lyrics and dark soulful vocal delivery always stands out in her music, and it’s this which she has been able translate effortlessly to other areas like alt pop and RnB with this project. ‘Come Back To Me’ is a tale of lost love where chilled out synths melt beautifully with Basheba’s layered vocals and RnB tinged melodies. *The 405 premiere
