After breaking some hearts with “Love So Cold” and “On Your Own,” we saw some slightly more upbeat romanticism on Fryars‘ ”Sequoia” and P&P premiere “Can’t Stop Loving You,” but his newest track sees the talented Ben Garrett entering a whole new musical realm. “Cool Like Me” is, quite simply, a brilliant piece of pop songwriting. While some offbeat electronic touches do remain, the song is based around a soaring chorus and galloping beat, with a sweeping string section adding the final flourish.
And that piano build around the two minute mark, preceding the final chorus? Blissful.
“Cool Like Me” will appear on Fryars’ forthcoming album Power.
