If “Call Me Out” is a taste of what to expect from Sarah Close‘s debut EP, Caught Up, then it’s set to be the making of a star.
You may recognise Close’s name as a YouTube star that’s covered artists from The Weekend to Adele, but now she wants to step out as a musical force of her own.
“Call Me Out” is a dreamy piece of modern synth-pop that hits all the right spots.
The first thing you notice in the track is how Close uses her voice, we know she can hit the big notes, but here it’s very restrained which only helps make the track. A big vocal here would just not fit right in the melody.
The production lends influences from the synth-pop heavyweights like Tove Lo and Troye Sivan, and still remains original enough to set Close as a force to be reckoned with – if she carries on delivering this sort of material!
“Call Me Out” could have easily been crushed by the length at 4:01, this kind of length for a debut track is risky. Can the audience stay interested for that long?
Yes, yes you can. The track manages to not feel long and that only goes to prove the song’s greatness.
