Indie/new wave oriented as well as paired with a poppy vocal topline, “Call Back,” calibrates a smooth balance that makes the track a stand out. From the first moments, a throwback quality is quickly sensed, the keyboard work plus groovy drums begin to capture the attention. A more soothing nature soon takes the limelight as the vocals rev up to capture the focal point. Playing the role of composer, producer, writer, and singer on the track, perhaps the many components of himself put into the project helps drive the uniqueness and quality-nature within. An eased setting is captured altogether as Pagu sings a romantic story fit for modern times.
