Taken from NoMBe’s upcoming LP, They Might’ve Even Loved Me, Freak Like Me flares with a sensual appetite for sexual desire.
The Th3rd Brain Records artist is currently soaking up millions of plays on Spotify and rightly so. Previous release Young Hearts spoke poetically about first loves and the fun of new experiences, while NoMBe’s latest speaks more directly about his current relationship and their private affairs.
This is the one and only song my significant other never wanted me to release. Lucky for you she eventually caved because the world needs to hear it.
From the word go, NoMBe immediately demonstrates the effortlessly cool style he’s demonstrated throughout his current body of work, channelling Sister Rosetta Tharpe initially before travelling towards the territory smooth soul. Rolling guitars drip onto hazardous electronics, as Freak Like Me quickly turns its enticing opening into a roaring chorus of sharp sounds from heavy blasts of overly stimulated speakers as seduction takes over.
With the added energy of rock ‘n’ roll mixed together with his contemporary R’n’B style, NoMBe channels the intuitive style of Alt-J together with the sexuality of Prince during his early stardom, creating the latest addition to the world’s never-ending playlist of songs to get down and dirty too.
