Review: "Perfect" - Loie
Have you ever been with someone who made everything feel easy? When you're next to them, every stress you have just melts away. They're someone who brings a comforting energy into your life, and you feel like you can talk to them about anything. "Perfect" by Loie sets the tone of having one of these peaceful relationships and wanting it to be more than just a short-time thing. When you find someone who makes you feel this good, you want it to be a long-term commitment. You still find yourself afraid of being too straight-forward about your feelings for them; you don't want to scare them away, but you just can't help yourself. To you, they're perfect.
Loie's soft and angelic vocals lure you into a relaxing state of mind. With a stripped-back and dreamy RnB influenced soundscape, you can't help but feel like you're floating on a cloud. Showing love for her heritage, she features audio recordings of Tobago wildlife within the intro; sounds that she recorded herself while visiting. Watch the music video above for a cinematic experience of the beauty of the Island of Tobago, which was filmed by Loie herself while staying there over the Summer with her family. She wanted to share the incredible moments she witnessed and memories she made while staying on the island, paired with the love-note inspired lyricism of 'Perfect'.
Loie is a Chinese-Trinidadian artist and songwriter currently based in South-East London. Inspired by artists like Jill Scott, Nina Simone and Eva Cassidy, Loie focuses on a RnB influenced sound but makes it her own; with melodies and lyrics that are tactically and carefully created, guaranteeing to captivate everyone who listens. With her debut EP in the works, 'Perfect' is the stunning lead single in preparation for what's still to come. With previous support from Fresh Finds UK and Ditto, It's no doubt that Loie is going to become the one to watch.
