There is an exciting crop of young musicians coming out of the UK right now, singers, songwriters, or producers (and often all of the above) who are heavily influenced by electronic music but combine that with a love of catchy hooks and accessible vocals. Artists like MNEK, Karma Kid, and Leo Kalyan, who all collaborated on “Over You,” suggest a future filled with pop music that is vibrant and interesting, rather than just formulaic.
Where Kalyan’s previous song “Breathe” saw him exploring the darker corners of his mind, “Over You” feels a little more upbeat, even as he is admitting he still isn’t over someone. Still, the glimmering production and gently tropical feel makes this a perfect summer song, built for poolside relaxation or windows down cruising.
Listen to our premiere of “Over You” below.
