Having already collaborated on three tracks, there’s no denying that Rubayne and EthanUno’s synergy is unmatched. Staying really consistent this year, the talented producer and charismatic vocalist have now teamed up once again, sharing their best single to date with “Hear Me Now,” an ode to an old friend who sadly passed away last year.
Out on Killabite Media, “Hear Me Now” is an intricate yet explosive record. Smooth guitars and captivating ambiances kick off things under EthanUno’s breathtaking vocal performance. The heavenly drop that follows is filled with bright synths, vocal chops, and gritty bass undertones, while EthanUno’s heartfelt lyrics read: “It hurt to see you go, knowing you will never know everything you did for me. I know that you hear me now,” wrapping up the story on a positive note.
“‘Hear Me Now’ is, for me, more of a moment than a record. It was my way of commemorating and even speaking to my friend Albert Pan, who passed away last year. I owe him a lot musically; as he was a massive inspiration, a hell of a producer, and a great friend. This track is a way of expressing my thank you to him and paying homage to his legacy,” explains EthanUno, while Rubayne adds: “It resembles an ode to a friend who helped and inspired me and many others with his music, knowledge and kindness. In response to his passing, this song shows my appreciation for every soul he brightened.”
