Song Review : 'Don't Forget About Me' by Cloves

I think it has been more than a year now that I haven't reviewed a song that's not on request! Well, to end that record on this note, 'Don't Forget About Me' chose me today, made my day, pulled me in and asked me to speak and halt as it instructed me to. Also, on the brighter part, 'Cloves' turns out to be one of the very few (by very, I mean very) modern artists who do not fail to impress us on the musical part of music (since most of the other stuff is concealed under a very consumerist veil nowadays). 

Still from the music video of 'Don't Forget About Me'

I got to listen to this song first while watching the 2016 movie 'Me Before You' and given that I was getting distracted every 6 seconds during the movie, the song was a sudden rush through some hidden canal somewhere inside me and when I was back in my senses, I was still watching the movie with the song playing louder than the movie on my phone. And then for the next two days, I was literally possessed by the intriguingly luscious appeal of nothingness that the entire concept of the song dripped in its verdict, philosophy, and literature. 

The uniqueness of the song is in the apparent inconsistency in the lyrics, which is understandable only when you find the portrayal of detachment that occupies all the void that is existent within each word of every sentence in the song! It certainly beats Adele's 'Hello' any day, any moment. The melody has a pungent erraticism to it, a vast hollowness, a myriad pale shades of the dusk and lost letters put together. And as for the performance part, it is very very captivating and somehow is similar to that of Adele's - the only difference being in the fact that Kaity Dunstan did not go through a surgery to add octaves to her vocal range and her voice is somewhat sweeter, something that intensifies the song even more. This has the potential universal favourite anytime sooner or later!

Side Note: Kay, Kaity Dunstan is beautiful. A very mild rustic touch and moody visuals have definitely contributed to the concept of the videography.
