Caleb Blair is an artist whose brand of hard-hitting pop has already started making waves. Prior to his smash hit single ‘Tropicana’ in 2018, Caleb was busy honing his craft as a writer and this is evident in “Hate It When You Leave,” with every inch of it’s melody and each hooky lead line being neatly crafted and wrapped into pop-perfection.
“Hate It When You Leave” is a pop marvel that is centered around distancing yourself from those you need the most. With an infectious chorus, this one is destined to have you rolling down the car window and tapping the wheel. Merging the lines between indie-rock and commercial pop, Hate It When You Leave is a floor filler that blends clever synth work and jangly guitars effortlessly.
Speaking to the motivation behind Hate It When You Leave, Caleb Blair shares:
“Writing ‘Hate It When You Leave’ was an outlet for my frustration with myself when I realised I was constantly pushing people away that were trying to love me well. The lyrics in the bridge are the words I’m trying to turn into action still to this day.”
