Love Me Not Him by HOLMES: Review
Once in a while, there comes an artist whose voice is so intense and passionate that you can’t help but captivate by their entire presence. Today, the limelight shines upon HOLMES a truly sensational indie rocker with a voice that is as smooth as the autumn breeze. His track “Love Me Not Him” has enticing guitar tracks, percussive elements that are powerful, and synthesizers that emit an energetic sense of freedom.
The story of the record revolves around the main character’s attempts to persuade a loved one to reconsider their feelings for another person. There is talk of doomed love on one side and a promising love on the other, as well as their mutual influence on one another. It truly is an enchanting tale, albeit with some twists. And as HOLMES sings about it with an emotional ode, you can grasp his thoughts and heartfelt performance. The voice of the artist is a mix of baritone and also just a little higher range than it. It’s quite soothing to hear honestly. The pre-chorus has the guitar entering the background with some light chords which are distorted. Later on, when the track enters a full-on chorus, it has elements of bass, electronica, and indie rock blended with it. It is fierce and speaks volumes of what love is, or what can be. It is fire from start to finish.
When you’re searching for the right track to hit you right in the feels HOLMES delivers that very essence mood. “Love Me Not Him” is available for streaming, so please do check it out!
