Hidden behind sparse cover art, you’re introduced to the luxurious sound of M.I. by a lonely chord being struck, which then calmly gets weaved into a gorgeous, widescreen tapestry of rich and twinkling music. Call it modern soul, call it R&B, call it bursting at the seams with a sense of longing and regret. It’s a song that functions much like an old photograph would: to remind you of days long past, lives not lived and people who’ve long since disappeared. M.I.’s voice, her strongest asset, is on full display here, and it shines. And as soon as the song hits its dramatic finale, you can’t help but be swept up in it.
In short, M.I. makes tunes excellent for staring out a window to.
