Turning Down The Lights

Duke Dumont featuring A*M*E “Need U (100%)”

In some ways it is odd to think of this as being the work of teenagers, in that this song is made with a very high degree of craft, and the vocal performance seems rather adult to me. But then again, this is music for very young club people, isn’t it? And the lyrics have a charming naivete to them: She’s singing very earnestly about wanting to be loved and demanding public affection, and while that’s not a thing that necessarily fades away with age, this comes across as very sweet rather than maybe a little desperate. It wouldn’t take much to shift the phrasing to make it feel that way.

Buy it from Amazon.
