Ana Arts’ latest release is HMU.
Ana Arts, a London-based singer-songwriter, has a very open and modern perspective on HMU’s lyrics, but the song itself has a timeless aura that will appeal to music enthusiasts. Take a listen to the song below.
HMU’s songs have a raw, revealing edge to them that may be emotionally taxing for those who are more restrained, expressing the complexities of love and loneliness in great detail. Ana Arts, on the other hand, softens that overwhelming wellspring of emotion by matching the lyrics with a melody that sounds like it was written in a 1930s meets 1960s pop/blues parallel reality.
It gives the music an immediacy that, when combined with a catchy chorus, gives HMU a strange sense of lift. The entirety of the song nicely ties in with the lyrics’ central themes of self-worth.
“HMU is about feeling romantically numbed, you know that sensation when you’ve overdone it a little bit and nothing or no one looks that wonderful anymore?” she adds of the lyrics’ notions. It’s about wanting that feeling back, wanting to yearn for something or someone, but for some reason, all you seem to attract is kind of’meh.’ As a result, you begin to believe that you are better off alone, and that you should be more discriminating about who enters your bedroom and/or personal life.
“And it’s about owning that, owning that loneliness – who cares if I’m alone myself?” I’m grateful that I’m alone and not lured by mediocrity. I’m glad I didn’t give them my phone number because I’d rather wait for something amazing to happen.”
Ana Arts’ HMU is available on Deezer, Spotify, and Apple Music. Follow Ana Arts on Facebook and Instagram for more listening options and updates on upcoming releases.
