SONG PICK: Notelle – Come For Me
Singer and songwriter Notelle is born in Nashville, Tennessee, but this would not give you a hint of where she is going musically. Her latest single “Come For Me” is a haunted, dark pop gem with an elegant production that – while trendy – holds some surprises. And if you want to feel some good chills, Notelle comes up with an eerily scientific explanation for what is ultimately a ghost song:
I have always found the concept of ‘shadows’ fascinating, as they’re quite literally a dark sided piece of you that is intangible, yet always present. It reminded me a lot of the remnants of an old love. They’re there still, but not really…it’s a frightening concept. It’s widely accepted, at this point, that all living things are made up of energy – and I’ve been reading more and more recently about how even after a living thing has left a space, it is possible that their residual energy can linger. You can feel it, even when you’d give anything to erase it. That’s what this song is about…that shadow that haunts you, that memory that overstays it’s welcome, that person whose presence it’s still there long after they’re gone.
