Half of electronic R&B duo Denitia and Dene, Brian Marc gives us a soulful serenade about the space left when your lover leaves. Discover his new track “Let Your Lover Go” in this post!
“Let Your Lover Go” is the first single off Brian Marc‘s new solo album titled “The Extraordinary Pleasure of Being Someone Else.”
Produced by Brooklyn production duo Geek Session, a melancholy tune weaves in and out of careful snares and harbors a catchy refrain. The minimalistic production allows the clever lyrics to express just the right amount of mournfulness without being cheesy.
“Let Your Lover Go” finds the beauty in heartbreak, and encapsulates the emptiness someone can leave in your life.
“Under fireplaces where we smoked/and ponder all the things one needs to know,” Brian “Sene” Marc reminisces about past relationships. The song paints a nostalgic, longing picture of the imprint on the pillow lingering after your lover has left. As a solo artist, Marc brings a similar production style from his Denitia and Sene days, while continuing to develop on his own. As the rapping half of the former duo, Marc gets a chance here to hone his harmonizing skills with Drake-esque crooning. Marc spits some bars in the song as well, rapping:
Marc sounds wistful without being vague, gifting the listener with relatability.
