Premiere: Melaku -“Lost Your Lover”

“Lost Your Lover” is a just-released track from Melaku, a rising act from Santa Cruz who channels the spirit of captivating love ballads of the past on this track’s melodic flow and genuine yearning. Bouncy keys and heart-tugging string accompaniments help guide Melaku’s smooth vocals, with the combination of the symphonic gliding and faultless vocal presence resulting in ear candy. It’s a very enjoyable track and one that suggests a big year is in store for Melaku.
