TUNE Helen Connelly - Do You Remember
Quoted from The Revue Music Blog (credits):
'Opening with ascending piano, “Do You Remember” offers the simplest of backdrops for Helen’s almost-a capella intro. With a voice like that, who needs instrumentation? Yet it builds, layer upon layer, tantalisingly bluesy, with little hints of influences far and wide. Listen carefully and there’s even a bit of Bollywood in there, alongside sharp percussion, electro, tango and torch song. And oh the voice!
If you can bring yourself back to the lyrics, this is a song of reminiscence. Yearning for the days of new love, “blissfully high under a summer haze” but curiously without conclusion. Does it end badly? Do those early passions lead to a long-term affair? Helen leaves it up to you, closing with a call to reflection “would we turn back time?” As the Northern Hemisphere moves into a (hopefully) long and lazy summer, “Do You Remember” could be the anthem of the season.'
