Kiwi singer Robinson has just dropped her second single ‘Crave You’, and it’s an electro-pop triumph.
Written about the “sweet misery” of being infatuated with someone you know is bad for you, the song’s production slowly builds in intensity. We get to hear Robinson add some power to her vocals in this one, and she shows her competence as a rising pop export.
Robinson sounds like a slightly more chilled version of Sia, and the song’s pulsing synths make you think of an abandoned dance floor that still has it’s disco lights flashing at 3am.
The Nelson native explained, “‘Crave You’ is about missing the routine, the company and connection with someone at the end of a relationship, more than the person themselves.”
Robinson’s been performing her first shows across the ditch, opening for Meg Mag on her Australian tour. Let’s hope she plays in her homeland soon.
