The most iconic take-me-back songs are typically packaged in dreary apologies and impassioned piano riffs. In a refreshing twist Swedish synth outfit Urban Cone
and a the ever emotionally tumultuous Tove Lo
will have none of it. The single's momentum plows through the lonely lament of waiting for the love you may not deserve, and delivers a different dose of urgency.
The distorted vocals that introduce the track tease a more strutting love song, like Kanye's "Bound 2," but rather than riding off into the Sunset, this track's gravity is found in a the crystal blue waters seeping out of the cracks in a good thing. "Come Back To Me" isn't a rescue flare, it's a seatbelt.
