Why am I always entranced by a female’s vocals over a mellow, edgy beat? I am so impressed by the quality of this song and how lovely the voices blend. I love how every time I give it a listen, the song feels new and alive with a unfamiliarity. It might have to do with the male and female vocal combination, which makes it not as accessible if you’re trying to sing along. You have to find a vocal register that works for you, so that you’re not totally making a boob of yourself in lower and higher tones. For that reason, this is high quality sonic experience that is best enjoyed while solo grooving.
I’ve always been impressed by the music that Rudimental puts out, so it came as no surprise to me that this track was so lovely to my ears. The introduction of the song is subtle and focused, tightly wrapped with a singular beat combatted by very neat introductions to new sounds. And unlike the rest of Rudimental’s music, everything about this song is funky, the electronic elements balancing out the soulful sounds beautifully but not overshadowing at all.
I listened to this song as the sky opened up after a brief thunderstorm today, and I felt like the whole world made sense. There’s very little for me to say besides what’s already been said, so go ahead and enjoy this one. Whether you’re at work, at home with the cat, with your lover, or in the company of friends, Baby will find its way into your heads and hearts, and won’t let go.
