The London-based band JW Paris has released a new song to talk about the use of social media and some of its impact in their new single, “You’ve Got Me.”
“You’ve Got Me” has existed in the JW Paris archives from day one, recorded at Foel facility (The Fall, The Stranglers, Klaxons) the UK’s second oldest home recording facility. The band had never felt ready to share the song, until now. They have pushed into 2023 with a deeper and heavier tone to their tunes, with more authentic and honest lyricism.
As we all know, social media has become so common that most of us struggle to stay away from it, this song may encourage you to know the importance of staying true to yourself instead of following the happenings on social media and succumbing to their impact.
The creative instrumentation and arrangement of the song which includes dynamic changes, breaks, and a catchy chorus, made the song more catchy. Also, the introduction of soothing guitar tones, a catchy refrain, and a bluesy intensity enhanced its overall musical quality, making it engaging and memorable and will make you want to listen to it over and over again. The production of the song is top notch, all the instruments were used appropriately and the vocals can be heard clearly as well.
The song starts with intense drums and strings, and as it unfolds, two male vocalists from the band start singing together, asking, “Do you recognize the violence?” This question prompts listeners to consider the potential harm caused by algorithmic manipulation and the relentless pursuit of attention in today’s online media.
This song will surely have impact on your life especially if you are a victim of the impact of social media.
