A good portion of retro aesthetics, powerful Eighties synths and the unmistakable voice of Anna Rossinelli - with the new single "Somebody Like You", the 34-year-old Basel native has succeeded in creating a uniquely melancholic dance anthem. As a contrast, the gripping dancefloor vibes are accompanied from the very first line by the longing of a long-gone love: "I'm getting high on memories / and unaccomplished dreams I used to dream / somewhere, somewhen" she sings, not entirely free of nostalgia.
In "Somebody Like You" Anna describes the feeling after a painful breakup, when the heartbreak is great and the memory of the time together usually shines brighter than it actually was. She speaks of the disorientation that can suddenly occur, "Now that it seems I'm on my own." And of the perception when the stories of the past suddenly seem more hopeful than the dreams of the future: "I'm getting lost in ever-fading memories / I've kept through all those years / right here with me". Honestly she admits: "I cant't keep myself from falling back in love with you". So it would only take one short moment that could change everything.
With the soft disco sounds, Anna Rossinelli continues the style and atmosphere of the previous single "Forevermore". The song takes the time it needs to build up the drama and slowly bring the fast beats into play. Only when the euphoria has been dragged out for as long as possible does the radiant climax arrive. It's not just any club dancefloor that's being danced on here until the early hours of the morning, but the experienced, grown-up version of it. And with so much rhythm, maybe that can be comforting to the heart in the end.
