This sort of dark and melancholic pop is so relevant right now, when so much public turmoil creates a multitude of ripples. Noemi Caro, with her new single Don’t, gives words to the fear and realization that perhaps many are feeling:
“Don’t leave me behind
wouldn’t be the first time
I’m stranded in the night
Don’t leave me behind
I could be a streetlight
I got you in my shine”— Noemi Caro
It’s like exorcising a demon: by calling it out, it goes away. She is standing up to the night, to the darkness, and creating a safe place for the cold and lonely. And that voice: the deep resonance of the contralto and the quivering vibrato of the lead vocal will melt your cold, selfish heart - and you will love her for it.
Noemi Caro is a singer-songwriter from Copenhagen, Denmark. This song is featured on our CHILL NEW Songwriters playlist.
