You’ll find plenty of minced words and sentiment on the airwaves, but with up and coming artist Sarah Reynold’s latest single “I Need Love” you get a fresh cut of emotion.
Sarah Reynolds’ expressively powerful take on an RnB gives you the same iron-wrought emotion of a traditional ballad. Yet I Need Love is a track which takes its own distinctive form through the modern stylistic instrumental arrangement and Sarah Reynold’s tensile evocative vocals.
The open and unabashed lyrics are transfixing from start to finish. No one really likes admitting that they need love; there’s a socially constructed sense of weakness which surrounds it. I Need Love forcibly blew those perceptions out of the water and served a sharp stark reminder that everyone needs love. With that in mind, I Need Love is undoubtedly one of the most powerful singles on the topic of love I’ve heard in a while. And what better date for it to be released on than Valentine’s Day?
I Need Love will be available to stream on all major platforms including Spotify from February 14th.
