Cally Rhodes Brings An Early Summer Early With Pop Track: “Like I Used To”

Reminiscent of artists such as Anne-Marie and Bebe Rhexa, BBC Introducing Shropshire’s 2018 artist of the year Cally Rhodes has been making waves in the music industry since her debut single ‘Soul Survivors’ in 2017, racking up over 6,000 likes on her Facebook page and over 8,000 subscribers on her Youtube channel. 

Heartfelt and honest R&B lyrics meet all-out Pop production in her latest single ‘Like I Used To’. Her soulful and bright vocals ring out over the electro-drum timbres which gives the song a flavour of Summer and a beat that might just get you dancing, or at least tapping your foot. The potential for a soft acoustic version is also clear if you listen closely to the lyrics, indicating Rhodes’ versatility across genres. 

In ‘Like I Used To’ Rhodes is looking back over a failed relationship and realising that she doesn’t feel the same way anymore. This sense of nostalgia, of which many can relate to, is transformed into an uplifting tune sure to imbed itself in the  minds of all who listen. The stripped back opening of the song builds into a Dance-Pop anthem upon reaching the first chorus and subsequently sustains this infectious energy throughout later sections in the song.

In a satisfying reprieve during the bridge, the production focuses on Rhodes’ gentle breathy vocals, before building back into a final, impassioned chorus, carried by the bass drums and ornamental backing vocals. 

Rhodes has proved herself a potential queen of Pop in this track, which might well just become your soundtrack to Summer.
