Sir, Please – “Win Me Over”


A stirring blend of saxophone, guitars, and synths lead the catching “Win Me Over,” a blissful pop success from California-based quartet Sir, Please. Smooth and soulful vocals play with a snappy allure throughout, only absent as a moody introduction of brass and hazy synths concoct an intoxicating soundscape.

The tempting opening sequence sets the scene: “There was something in the air, like no one else was there, it was just the two of us.” Subsequent temptations to turn off the lights and strut personal rhythms drive into the infectious chorus. Effect-laden vocals concoct an intriguing bridge in the following section, with added synth-forward atmospherics enamoring during the chorus’ next entry. “Win Me Over” shows a standout, replay-inducing pop production with a soulful soundscape.

The single was written by twin brothers Josh and Shane Cronin, and per the band “attempts to navigate the exciting yet uncertain nature of falling too hard for someone too soon.”

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of April 2023’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Pop.
