Ajay Mathur – “I NEED YOU NOW”


Impressing in prior years with tracks like “Nothing Really Matters” and “Forget About Yesterday,” Ajay Mathur presents an eclectic rock sound with the new track “I NEED YOU NOW.” Vibrant acoustics and playful vocals assemble an accessible beginning, leading to a shimmering title-referencing hook. Further along, several additional instruments emerge with melodic and aesthetic appeal. The sitar (Kalyanjit Das) and tabla (Adriana Husy & Patrizia Scarnato) play prominent roles after the first chorus, adding to the multiple vocal layers and amiable shimmer. “I NEED YOU NOW” shows further engaging pop songwriting from the Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter.

Mathur says the following about the track:

“If nothing else, recent times have shown us how dearly we need human connection and closeness. Admitting that we are vulnerable or lonely is not always easy, but the rewards can be great. ‘I Need You Now’ is about stepping over our shadows and saying it out loud. I need you. Now!”

“I NEED YOU NOW” and other memorable tracks from July can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of July 2021’ Spotify playlist.
