Over a cool, cutting-edge reggae-pop groove, Kenny Fame puts into words the way that we all feel from time to time. Those moments when you begin to question the solidity of a relationship, when doubts creep into your head, especially when you have spent time apart, after all, as he rightly points out, “it feels better when you are near.”
This is reggae for the modern age, it takes the infectiousness of that genre’s traditions and then gently pushes them through a pop-dance filter, and even when discussing the drama and chaos that sometimes infects relationships, the song itself is nothing short of sunny, soulful and infectious.
And that is a cool thing to be able to do. The lyrics might switch between a celebration of the feeling of love and some darker doubts but the music which propels the song is nothing short of euphoric.
