A dynamic and energetic autumn anthem, President Street’s forthcoming single ‘I Found Me’ is an ode to relationships. It’s a track about finding someone who makes you feel whole and who gives you the strength to be the best version of yourself. It taps into the euphoria that is felt at the beginning of a burgeoning relationship and captures the excitement that is felt in the initial stages of a romance.
Beginning with a laidback electric guitar riff, the song is quickly kicked into first gear with the introduction of Ruby’s commanding vocals. There is an effortlessness to her voice, and she glides throughout the song never once being outdone by the track’s full on instrumentation and heavy percussive drive. The song’s lyrics tell a story of meeting someone and finding a ‘wholeness’ within yourself that you simply didn’t see as a possibility.
The song continues to build until we reach the climax, a catchy and empowering chorus. “I didn’t know I was looking for you till I found me” sings Ruby with enviable conviction. Yes, it’s a track about falling in love with someone, but it’s also about falling in love with yourself. The track encourages to approach life with vigour and strength, and to trust we will find what we’re looking for.
Mixed by the celebrated mixer, writer, and musician Ash Howes, the track has what it takes to become the anthem of autumn 2019. Howes, who has worked with One Direction, Kylie Minogue, and Jack Savoretti (to name but a few), has been instrumental in the success of some of the industry’s most popular albums and he has now applied his Midas touch to ‘I Found Me’.
The release of ‘I Found Me’ comes following a busy year for this Pop-fusion collective. Having already released a string of their high energy and melodically driven singles, the outfit then took to the road with an unplugged national UK tour that showed their softer, acoustic side. Now back in Australia, President Street have been busy in the studio writing and producing new music in preparation for their upcoming season of releases.
