Last month we covered a new face to the site, Richard Orofino. Today we share his new track ‘Be With You’, off the US singer’s new EP ‘Spell’.
“Be With You” is another bright indie-pop offering that blends driving guitars, bass strums, synths and the singer’s falsetto vocals.
‘“Be With You’ started as an iPhone recording of my voice humming a melody, which later became the chorus. I wanted it to feel like a song you almost recognized but never existed”, Richard explains. “Writing the lyrics was a really important moment for me. I got to put myself in a vulnerable position and start saying things I’ve always hid. Anxiety sucks, and so does nervously biting your nails. Being able to speak about these little things that have always heavily affected me was like a weight off my soul. Relationships are tricky sometimes too. But when you’re both truly willing to move forward together in a healthy way, you can feel unstoppably in love”.
