Conor Hamilton is ready to make his mark with his debut single,’ See Me Now’. This debut includes a strong baseline with jazzy elements mixed in. His vocals are smooth and have so much soul to them. I love how he puts his emotions into words making you feel everything.
According to his press release, ‘See Me Now’ tells the story of a person taking the final steps to break themselves away from a toxic relationship which is playing on their mind. Produced and co-written by Ben Hogan (better known as BENJAMYN), the track opens with a combination of a staccato guitar line accompanied by a strong layered vocal line acting as the main melody. The lyrics reminisce on some of the most selfish actions of a partner that pushes the couple further apart before the last straw sees Conor walk. The chorus, which wonders whether the partner is watching as Conor moves with his life, is the highpoint before a rapped bridge brings the track to its final chorus.
When talking about the track, Hamilton-Long admits he holds the track extremely close to his heart to the personal nature of its lyrics. “The song deals with a period of my life which I felt I was being slightly taken advantage of in a relationship and then pushed aside when something new came along” he recalls, “Though it was a rough time for me, I used it as a learning curve and personally have grown from it and become a better person”
Speaking ahead of the tracks released, Hamilton-Long notes “I have spent a long time toying with certain songs to put out which haven’t made it but this one just feels like the right one to use as my debut”. Despite the difficulties, he’s finally ready to release his debut. “All of this work has paid off because I am finally happy to share this song” Hamilton-Long smiles, “and use it as my introduction to the music world” I can’t wait to see where he takes his music. I am defiantly a fan and you will be too.
