Erawan – Touch Me

There must be something about tracks with the title ‘Touch Me’ that instantly become legendary – look at The Doors for an example. Erawan’s new single described the experience of feeling desire for someone else while being in a relationship. Feeling tempted to do the wrong thing while desperately wanting to reignite the spark in the current relationship, the track longs for a touch that seems impossible.

“Touch Me” is coated with an iconic folk meets grunge arrangement. Erawan’s remarkable vocals will hits close to home with fans of The Cure and other gothic outfits. Recorded in London with producer Danny Allin (Laura Mvula, Labrinth, Emeli Sandé) – the complex track is poetic and in places, theatrical.

At just under 2 and a half minutes long, ‘Touch Me’ may be short, but it crams addictive melodies and Erawan’s true personality straight into it’s mix. Getting it’s point across without any delayed reactions, ‘Touch Me’ is thought-provoking and haunting. An emotive performance straight from the soul, Erawan’s third single to date is unapologetic and iconic. How we wish this was the sound of charts at the moment – this would easily be a number one single if so.

Cinematically powerful, someone get this in an episode of tv show YOU already.
